I have a win 2000 server, and I wish to get the default gateway pointing at another server. Even If I take down the
adapter with the original default gateway 192.168.0.254, I cannot get it to point at the desired one, 192.168.110.254, route print always shows 192.168.0.254. I'vee fiddled around with arp as suggested in another solution and to no avail. any ideas?

Tried that, moved local area connection 2 to the top of the list, rebooted, and route print still shows 192.168.0.254 as
default gateway!

Thanks for your tip

Once you have re-prioritized your desired default gateway adapter following anupnellip's tip, then try this:

Disable all adapters except the one with your desired default route (192.168.110.254 in your case) by right-clicking on the adapter in Network & Dialup Connetions and selecting Disable. Once both adapters are disabled, re-enable them using the same process and your default route should be set correctly.
