The command you're looking for is route.
Check what your current gateway is
To check your current gateway, run the command:
route -n get -ifscope en0 default
This instructs route to return the path it would take using en0 to reach www.google.com.
The -n argument turns off domain name resolution in the output (else gateway in the sample output below would be the name of my gateway).
The -ifscope argument limits the query to using en0. Without it, to OS will select which interface to use.
default tells route that you want to see the default gateway. You can put a URL here instead if you suspect your OS is choosing something other than the default gateway to access a host.
The output will be something along the lines of:
route to: default
recvpipe sendpipe ssthresh rtt,msec rttvar hopcount mtu expire
0 0 0 0 0 0 1500 0
Delete the current gateway
To delete the current gateway from en0, run:
sudo route delete default -ifscope en0
This will delete the default gateway from en0 while leaving any other defined routes intact.
Add the new gateway
To add the new gateway to en0, run:
sudo route add default 192.168.1.1 -ifscope en0
Replace 192.168.1.1 with the IP address of the actual gateway.
