As xanandu said...

But, just using
route -f
should remove the gateway, first.

And if you want to make the new gateway persistent, use
route -p add 0.0.0.0 MASK 0.0.0.0 [gateway ip address] IF [interface]

You can see the default gateway by doing ipconfig /all.

To configure from CMD review the following:

ipconfig

netsh int ipv4 show int
netsh int ipv4 set address 11 static 192.168.1.X 255.255.255.0 192.168.1.1

by using the command "route print" in a command window, you will see a line that says
"0.0.0.0          0.0.0.0         a.b.x.y       a1.b1.x1.y1" with the column headers  "network destinatoin, netmask, gateway, and interface"

this is your default route.

to create a new one you can do it with the route add command

"route add 0.0.0.0 MASK 0.0.0.0 [gateway ip address] IF [interface]"

don't forget to delete the old default route.
"route delete 0.0.0.0 MASK 0.0.0.0 [oldgateway ip address] IF [old interface ip]"
