Configure Static Default Route on a DSL Router

Because the teleworker home network is typically a stub network, there is no need to enable routing protocols to maintain connectivity. This simply adds unneeded overhead to the router and WAN link. A static default route will suffice to send all nonlocal traffic to the next logical hop router and out to the Internet or enterprise network, as the case may be. Example 5-6 shows the configuration of the static default route.

Example 5-6 Static Default Route Configuration ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 interface dialer0

Any traffic destined for non-172.16.0.0 addresses will be sent via dialerO to the next-hop router where another routing decision will be made based on the destination IP address.
