[Slax]Change network config

Hi, I am using Slax 5.0.5 and I am wondering how to change the network configuration (especially the GATEWAY) since I can change the IP using ifconfig, change the name server by editing the /etc/resolv.conf. But how can I change the gateway?? I can edit the /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf, but should I need a reboot?But in using Slax, the rebooted settings are not saved. How can I change the gateway without reboot?
If I run the /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1, then it will automatically use the DHCP server.
Also, I've tried to use the /bin/netconfig command, but it also does not work.
I'm desperate with this one

Thanx alot for the helps.

Use the route command:

route del default

to delete the existing default gateway (if needed), and:

route add default gw <gateway IP address>
