I have contacted MS asking if there is a way to regain the behaviour of XP as it works a treat. Will update the thread if I get any useful reply.
Ah good.... (and I read the posts out of order).

Good job contacting MS, I look forward to their response.

I'm hoping to find a solid answer for this as well, we're getting ready to put 7 in production, but have to figure out a clean solution for this first.

@DC187 - Ah well... if I hear anything I'll drop back in and update the thread.... but I'm not holding my breath for MS.

@Flukemeister - What's the end goal that you after and what server OS' are you using? There could be other options for your scenario such as setting different gateways via DHCP for different IPaddress ranges or this solution here.

If you don't like your default gateway by DHCP, you can set to 1 this Registry Setting:

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\Tcpip\Parameters\DontAddDefaultGatewayDefault

Then add a new IP gateway in the "advanced graphic setup tcp/ip" and this one will be the first gateway.
