IP fowarding, a problem with my routes?

Hi, I looked around for a few days before making a post but I can't figure out what the problem is. Im using dnsmasq to do my routing. I think theirs a problem with my default route?

route -n shows

Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface UH 0 0 0 ppp0 U 0 0 0 eth0 U 0 0 0 ppp0

Should the bottom line have a default gateway that isn't

The last line should refer the default gateway, but it doesn't define a gateway at all (no G). Try adding manually (after removing the current last line)
route add default gw gateway_ip
