Where does it show the wrong default gateway? From my experience, this is most likely a firewall issue.


They are on two different subnets. Microsoft never wants you to disable the firewall. To get from one network to another you use your router (gateway). The gateway knows the next hop to the next network. DNS isn't used here and modifying the mask will not solve anything.


DNS is used, or at least the HOSTS file is, but it's just not relevant since it resolved the IP of Server2 and therefore DNS is working one way or the other.
