    Question how to add default gateway?

    I have added my default gateway during the system setup, and Yast shows it. But the system does not have a default route. What is wrong here?

    Re: how to add default gateway?

    99% of the time that happens because the bound network addresses do not
    match with that gateway. A default gateway must be one accessible by one
    of the configured IP addresses, taking into consideration the subnet mask
    of that configured network device. As a result, if you have a configured
    IP address of 192.168.1.1, and a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 (/24), and
    you try to set a default route of 192.168.2.2 (when you maybe meant to
    type 192.168.1.2), you will end up with no default route because it cannot
    be reached.
