Router is not routing the traffic to the Internet

Hi Experts:

I have a Cisco router that has the line:
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 10.3.1.252

There are certain sites that the router can not enroute properly, and I have to "manually" write the Static IP route to that URL.  For instance, if I want to a site like www.travelsite1.com  and I can not ping it, I add the static route and it works.

WHY ?

Here is a portion of the router configuration:
--------------------

router rip
 network 128.300.0.0
!
no ip classless
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 10.3.1.252

It would help to know a little more about the topology. Your default route points to a private IP address while you have some static routes for private IP networks that point to a public IP address.

Can you provide a topology map that shows your path to the internet?

The 10.3.1.252 is the firewall.

I am forcing everybody to go thru the firewall. In this way, I am closing the Port 80 and allowing only the Proxy server to go the Internet.

So I now, it seems complicated but is not.

10.3.1.252 is the firewall
10.3.1.253 is a VPN box that is doing nothing but route. It is acting as a gateway
128.300.123.1  is a Frame relay connection that allow us access to some resources

I'm seeing a bunch of routes in 69/8.  Any chance you have an interface on this router in 69/8 and have "no ip classless" in your config?  If so, stick 'ip classless' in there, remove the routes, and let us know how that works.
