You can't just add the default router line without a bit of knowledge
about what the IP address of the default router actually is.  Do you
know what the 192.168.0.* address for the router is?  I suggested
192.168.0.1 because that is often the default, but not necessarily so.

Can you post the result of "netstat -rn" from one of those other
machines?
