Is it a consumer grade, i.e. home router or is it cisco, juniper etc router?
If it's a cisco router you can do:

show ip route 192.168.0.0

and it will show you the outgoing interface and ip address of the next hop

If the above command responds with "subnet does not exist" use the command
Show ip route 192.168.0.0 255.255.255.0 longer-prefix

Substitute network and mask with whatever you're looking for. If there are no routes, it will show you your gateway of last resort.

Comments are great, but I don't see a route and it's not showing the gateway of last resort, could that be the gateway of last resort is not set? It does have a default-gateway IP?

Hi,

Which router do you have?
Is ip routing enabled?
Please can you post a sanitised version of the configuration.

Normally the default-gateway command is only used if a router is only being used as a bridge.
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 1.1.1.1
Is the normal method to set the default gateway where 1.1.1.1 is the gateway to the rest of the network/internet.
