This command will return the interface with the default gateway in a
parsable way:

```
C:\Users\benoitc> wmic nicconfig get SettingId,DefaultIPGateway /format:csv

Node,DefaultIPGateway,SettingID
DESKTOP-HV04GN1,,{F99FBC41-A2B8-4382-96C2-515CADD46DBF}
DESKTOP-HV04GN1,{192.168.1.254;fe80::224:d4ff:fea6:1b91},{6C201F80-3E4C-4207-9607-2C82ABE771DE}
DESKTOP-HV04GN1,,{D0A5BB3C-75DD-4224-9554-569137405B53}
DESKTOP-HV04GN1,,{58EB28CD-3B79-4A6A-A075-46577E343F83}
````

 now I could use the `where INDEX=X` condition if I am sure that
`inet:getifaddrs/0` always return in the same order. Not sure yet how to
filter using the SettingId...
