I've never tried to create a server, but I would think that using your default gateway as the server IP would be super duper ultra wrong. Nobody but you can connect to your router. Go to whatismyip.com and use your external IP.

I had some trouble doing this as well, so here are a few things that you could try/check:
- Make sure the port is forwarded and forwarded correctly (TCP/UDP, port 25565, correct IP for the computer that the server is on, etc) - In the server.properties file, try leaving the Server IP section blank (mine wouldn't work with any IP that I tried, I had to have it blank) - When connecting internally, use the IP you get from 'ipconfig', while externally use the one from the 'whatismyip' site - Try connecting with and without including the port. EX without: "192.168.0.3", EX with: "192.168.0.3:25565" (forums suggest adding the port, my friend could only connect without it) - Wait until it shows "Done!" on the server's console (I have impatient friends >.<)
