I'm not talking about gateway to the internet that is assigned by ISP. But rather if you create a vlan what IP address do you choose to be your routing gateway or default GW for the vlan? At our place we use the last x.x.x.253 IP address in each subnet. I've always wondered why the company chooses .253 and not .254 or .1 or whatever. Is there a rule i'm missing on choosing gateway IP addresses?
