In a normal linux environment we can do

gateway=`netstat -rn | grep ^0\.0\.0\.0 | awk '{print $2}'`


gateway=$(netstat -rn | grep ^0\.0\.0\.0 | awk '{print $2}')

but since Android's busybox/magisk doesn't support netstat -rn, what other commands can we use to get the gateway or router ip?


It is as simple as getprop net.dns1

    This is only true when your gateway / router is also the DNS server. On home networks this will work but this will fail on more complex networks with dedicated DNS servers. – GiantTree May 28 '17 at 17:30
