Cisco 1841 Router - need to setup static WAN IP through web console

I am hoping someone can help point me in the right direction here.  I need to configure the WAN IP interface with a static IP but when I try all it asks for is the IP and SM.  Nowhere does it ask for the Gateway address.  I am used to dealing with SonicWall or Netgear but this Cisco was an inherited heachache and I am not experienced with it.  

Thanks!!

Is there a "routing" section where you can specify a default route?

If you have CLI access to the router, setting the default route/gateway is quite simple:

enable
Password:
conf t
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 x.x.x.x   <--where x.x.x.x is your ISP's gateway.

CLI access require direct connection to the router or can I use a workstation to telnet in?

You can telnet it as long as telnet is setup.  Try telnetting to the IP address of the LAN interface.

You can type the command of
ip default-gateway x.x.x.x or you can also do is
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 x.x.x.x.

If your network is connected to router then you can telnet to it via the default gateway of your PC.

Do I have to save the configuration somehow or does that automatically happen?
