I am building a test/ lab 8600. I can connect via same layer II LAN but not off LAN. Typical default route symptom. After some digging I noticed the default route I added in a static routes it there and enabled (though shows "inactive") but when I click on the "Routes" tab in JDM there is only the 2 routes for the VLANs active on the switch, no default route? As a FYI the next hop on the default is an IP I can ping on LAN so the VLAN is active and has a member. I can even see MACs for that VLAN of multiple layer II hosts it sees. Any idea why the default route wont populate?

Only when the next hop is reachable an static route becomes active.
So I would suggest your next hop is nor reachable.

Itīs always the networks fault!
