How do I set the default gateway on a switch with Management VLAN 1 and IP address 192.168.1.1/24, when the gateway is 192.168.1.254?

There are two methods to set the default gateway in this scenario:

1.Setting the default gateway in management VLAN 1

  • Configure via web GUI
  • Configure via CLI
Switch# config
Switch(config)# VLAN 1
Switch(config-vlan)# ip address default-gateway 192.168.1.254

2.Using a Static Route to set the default gateway

  • Configure via web GUI
  • Configure via CLI
Switch# config
Switch(config)# IP route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 192.168.1.254

*Remember to save the configuration after you finish.
