Windows 7: Change network gateway

Recently started using Windows 7 64bit at work and I wanted to change my network gateway to use a different broadband line. I did the usual thing, went into the properties of my Local Area Connection, Properties of TCP /IPv4, Advanced, Default Gateways, Add. Added the IP address, perfect, has always worked before. Until now. 7 would just not accept it. Tried repairing the connection, restarting the PC. Nothing worked. I was starting to get frustrated!

There is quite a simple solution though. Just set your network card to use a static IP address and gateway and it works fine.

Easy.
