There's only one default gateway. If you want to do more complex routing, you can do that (read the howto and install iproute). But the simple case is that traffic to any local net is sent out on the appropriate interface, and traffic that needs to be routed elsewhere goes to the default gateway. I'm guessing you want to remove the gateway line from your private (192.168) interface. good times, Vineet -- http://www.doorstop.net/ -- One nation, indivisible, with equality, liberty, and justice for all.
