Hi

if it's cisco

try

ip default-gateway x.x.x.x

where the x.x.x.x ip is the next jump to either your ISP or the next device you need to reach

yes it is cisco router, I am thinking we can also set the default route like this

ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 x.x.x.x

where the x.x.x.x ip is the next jump to either your ISP or the next device you need to reach

Which one is better ?

The preferred way to do this is the following:

Example: ISP address is 192.168.10.1

Connect to the router via console or telnet

router> enable
router# config t
router-conf# ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 192.168.10.1
Obviously replace 192.168.10.1 with your ISP's address.

This (ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 x.x.x.x) is better.
