    I have a lan at home with a Linksys
    Wireless-G Broadband Router. To get to the Internet I have a Westell
    DSL modem, wired with an ethernet cable to the Linksys router at
    static IP address Any computer on the local LAN can
    activate the DSL router (i.e. get a DSL phone connection) by going to with http, and can then get to the Internet by setting
    a default gateway pointing to the DSL modem (e.g. route add default
    gw Most of my computers have a static IP address,
    but the router is configured to handle DHCP requests from a range of
    IP addresses. When on my Android I do Home > Settings > Wireless &
    networks > Wi-Fi on, I can connect to my local LAN with the Android,
    and it gets assigned an IP address, but to get it to the Internet I
    need to tell it what DNS servers to use, and what the default gateway
    is? How do I do that?
