After adding default gw, the tcpdump & route command work strange.

route command display immediately all elements in routing table except the default gateway that display after 10 sec.

tcpdump command has delay of ~30 sec before start display the traffic.

Removing the default gw element from routing table solved the problem.

Thanks in advance
