The "ip default-gateway" command is used to specify the default gateway when routing is not enabled. If routing is enabled ((config)#ip routing), the ip default-gateway command is unnecessary.

On a switch not capable of routing such as 2960, 2950 etc the "ip default-gateway" is required if you need to remotely manage the switch. On these type of switches the "ip routing" command has no bearing ( unsupported)

A layer 3 switch will use the "ip route" command while a layer 2 switch will need the "ip default gateway"

You have a layer 2 switch; you should use "ip deafult gateway X.X.X.X"

Which cisco switch you have ?
