with the command "ipconfig", i have the default gateway equal to the address ip of the firewall.

is it correct?
Or is better to change this for security?

thanks.

your default gateway should be set to whatever device on your network is responsible for ensuring that your traffic will go where it's destined. If your firewall is doing the routing between all your internal networks and the outside, then your firewall should be your default gateway. If you had a router on your internal network that handled where to send traffic (either out to the Internet, or to other private networks) then that would probably be a better choice for your default gateway.
