Default Network and Default gateway issues

I am having an issue trying to get my cisco 3600 to accept a default network.  There is one currently setup that is not configured properly.  Everytime I do the default commands to switch it, it will not take.  The commands I am using consist of enable, configure, ip default-gateway x.x.x.x

Could someone tell me why this number does not show when I do a show ip route later?

Are you trying to add a default route ? If so, use 'ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 x.x.x.x' and it would work.

Cheers,
Rajesh

You said it is setup for another network now.  You first need to use NO with the existing commands to remove these settings before the new ones will take.
