Without any default gateway you can still connect to any PC in the SAME
network as your network card configured.
The function of default gateway is to inform your PC which path to take if it
needs to go "OUTSIDE" your PC network.
Proxy is providing a similar service as a gateway, that's why you can use it
to browse the internet with a prerequisite of logging to windows domain
(apparently the proxy requires authentication).
