What is "Default Gateway?"

One of the access point that plays a very important role especially in configuring your modem is the "Default Gateway". A Default Gateway is the node on the computer network that is chosen when the IP address does not match any other routes in the Routing Table. he gateway is usually the ISP-provided device that connects the user to the Internet, such as a DSL or cable modem.
A default gateway is used by a host when an IP packet's destination address belongs to someplace outside the local subnet. The default gateway address is usually an interface belonging to the LAN's border router.

You can access the Graphical User Interface or GUI of your modem by typing the default gateway numbers on your address bar. n computer networking, a default gateway is the device that passes traffic from the local subnet to devices on other subnets. The default gateway often connects a local network to the Internet, although internal gateways for local networks also exist.

You can access or trace your PC's default gateway by:
◘ Performing an IP Configuration
◘Checking TCP/IP properties
◘ and through checking LAN properties in your control panel
