Usually you don't need to enter anything for 'default gateway' because your router IS the Internet gateway. Only put in an IP address if your ISP requires you to set that in your internet connection settings.
Here's a great guide for creating your own home router with Linux:

I just saw that link and read over it. Great info! I also found one that is a little more geared towards RPM based distros.
This might have some other information for you.
