Windows, persistent default gateway

If I persistent the default gateway as follows:

route -p add 0.0.0.0 MASK 0.0.0.0 [gateway ip address] IF [interface]

Open in new window


does that mean I will not lose my default gateway (and not lose connectivity) after I do a

route -f

Open in new window

No, it does not (had to test it though, see below (although you must believe me or do it yourself as I've edited the outcome, x.x.x.x is my def. gateway)
What it means is that it will be there after a reboot

H:\>route -p add 1.2.3.4 MASK 255.255.255.255 x.x.x.x

H:\>route -f

H:\>route print
