Or for temporary changes I would normally change the routing table and keep your gateway the same:

route delete 0.0.0.0
route add 0.0.0.0 mask 0.0.0.0 X.X.X.X

Use this to see the results:

route print

That will need to be run as admin, e.g. a quick batch file:

@echo off
route print | find " 0.0.0.0"
Set Gateway=1.2.3.4
set /p Gateway=Enter new gateway - press return for %gateway%:
route delete 0.0.0.0
route add 0.0.0.0 mask 0.0.0.0 %gateway%

You can do that with netsh.exe (see http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb490943.aspx); replace "Ethernet" with the name of the card you want to configzure, and 1.2.3.4 obviously with your gateway address:
netsh.exe interface ip set address name="Ethernet" gateway=1.2.3.4
