thanks for your trick. This trick works for me, but it is a bad solution
:-) I switched back to OLSR, although i like the concept of BATMAN more
then that of OLSR.
Announcing 0.0.0.0/0 can really be a problem, but why does BATMAN tunnel
the internet-traffic through gate0?
It will be nice, if there will be a option in the next release, where
users can decide to use routing or tunneling internet-traffic.

Default routes in a mesh can be really annoying and break network
functionality. If you only have one default gateway in your Batmand network
and really know what you are doing you can actually override this check with a
As a workaround you can announce two subnetworks 0.0.0.0/1 and 126.96.36.199/1
instead of 0.0.0.0/0.
