eberhardt2329, please clarify your question.  Not sure exactly what you mean or are trying to do.

To add default gateway, go to Control Panel -> Network & Dialup Connections.  Double-click your current connection and go to Properties -> Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).  From this screen you can manually set your IP address and default gateway.

I think you might be talking about adding a default gateway to the DHCP server.  To do this, go to DHCP manager -> Scope Options and add [003 Router].  This is the default gateway given out by your DHCP server.
