what version of SuSE (apparently SuSE, if you are talking about Yast) do you have?

This could help, either by providing this in each post, or putting it in your profile, at 'Distribution'.

In most of the distro you can configure your default gateway in a file in /etc/sysconfig/network/ and the file name is eth0-ifup or something like that
When you'll find it, edit it and add (or modify) this line:
