How odd ... I find it hard to believe, really.
192.168.x.x are in the private IP range, 196.214.15.x
is definitely public. A static route w/o an actual
OTHER gateway makes no sense in terms of IP networking.
What's the netmask on the windows-box, and what do you
get when you traceroute the gateway from the windows box?
