Can i use the same default gateway IP?

I'm not really good at networking but recently i was playing with my router and then i decided to make my local network connection's IP static. To this point everything worked perfectly with no problems and then I tried to do the same thing on my wireless network connection; however, when i used the same default gateway IP and save it, it gave me a warning that said something like "bla bla bla using the same DG might be a problem...

I saved it anyway to see if it was gonna work or not, but surprisingly it did. My question is, did i do something wrong? Or is it fine to use the same DGI for the 2 separate connections?

Yes, you can use the same DG on your connections. Just dont use that as the IP Address.
