easiest thing to do is create a simple VLAN

Switch# conf t (enter)
Switch(Config)#int VLAN (pick a number, other than 1) (ex. int VLAN 10)
Switch(Config-if)#ip address 111.222.333.444 255.255.x.x (using your subnet and mask here)
Type exit (or hit CTRL + Z, shortcut)
Switch# wr mem

To setup user name.

config t
username cisco priviledge 15 password C1sC0
exit

To setup management IP, (if the vlan 1 is your only vlan)

config t
int vlan 1
ip address 10.1.1.1 255.255.255.0
exit

To set default gateway of the switch.

Layer 3.
config t
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 10.200.1.1
exit

Layer 2
config t
ip default-gateway 10.200.1.1
exit


To save the config..

write mem or copy run start

One other command:
Switch#conf t (enter)
Switch(Config)#ip default-gateway 111.222.333.444 (place your address here)(enter)
Switch(Config)#ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 x.x.x.x (x = default gateway IP)(enter)
Type exit
