Cisco Default Route Not Appearing

Hello Experts,

I have configure a default route to our ISP, see configs.

However, I'm unable to see the default route with command ip route.

Any thoughts?

You probably have another conflicting default route configured and the router is not injecting your new route into the routing table.

Check the routes and remove any conflicts

Is this your intended default route?
 ip route xx.xx.xx.177
if not, remove this route and add the correct one
no ip route xx.xx.xx.177

If you however plan to keep it in your config. You can prepend an AD value higher than 1 at the end
ip route xx.xx.xx.177 20

Well spotted.

The problem is when I issue the command ip routing I lose my telnet connection to interface 0/0

Can you help with that?

I don't think I can help you. There are dark forces on your router that do their work. :)
I saw similar config first time few days ago, and I don't understand it.

similar config

ip default-gateway
ip route xx.xx.xx.177
You may be able to achieve the desired result just by replacing the default gateway address, with x.x.x.177

ip route x.x.x.x is the binary notation for default gateway.

IP routing usually is on by default unless someone disabled it.
It's possible it's an IOS limitation.
You can try updating the IOS on your router and try again
