Add permanent static route in Windows 7

What is a Routing Table?

A routing table is table that contains dictates who and what interface traffic should be sent to depending on the destination IP address. It is the primary component in the configuration of routers to ensure internetwork connectivity as packets are routed to their destination. For a Windows machine it is used to override the default gateway configured so you can introduce multiple networks and have the two networks be able to communicate with each other.
