What is the default gateway on my router and what does it do? What happens if I block it?


I have blocked it and the internet still works. I think some of you people are wrong with what you are saying.

    The default gateway address ( is the IP address of the router. If you type that in on your address bar, it will access the router interface.

    The default gateway, from the word gateway itself, is where all internet traffic going from you to the outside world and vice versa converges, and the gateway is what allows traffic to pass through, and determines which computer (if you have multiple computers connect) receives the data.

    Gateway = Pipe to the Internet

    If you want to block ALL internet traffic then block the Gateway.
