Well, I'm not sure how to explain it but that's certainly NOT what happens.
My local traffic stays local and anything that isn't on the local net goes
across the gateway. My understanding of a default gateway is one that is
used when a local route is not available. Do I have it wrong?
I'm sure someone here can explain it better.
