A default gateway
is the node
on the computer network
that the network software uses when an IP address
does not match any other routes in the routing table
. It is usually the IP address of the router
to which your PC network is connected.
This tutorial will show you how to find your default gateway IP address
to enter in your web browser's address bar to log in to your router
in Windows 8, Windows RT, Windows 8.1, and Windows RT 8.1.
