netdiag-DefGW failure

My only DC /DNS server passes almost every test except the NetDiag /test:defGW.  It comes back with failure stating no default gateway is found.  The server can reach everywhere in building and reaches the internet so I'm not sure why I am receiving this.  I do know, that pings to the internal interface of router/firewall (default gateway) fail from any and all machines.  Does this test use ping?  If not what could be going on and should I just ignore that test?

Yes the defGW test uses a total of four pings against the default gateway.  Since you are functional to the Internet, I would say you can safely ignore this test..
