The gateway keyword here isn't needed

Ok - you've spend loads of efforts getting the machines in the network
to know what to do to deliver traffic out to the world.
Which device is doing address translation ?
What are they configured to do address translation for ?
If the router is doing NAT for 192.168.2.0/24 only those
machines in that network will route correctly.
It looks like devices beyond the router ( 192.168.2.1 ) can't
get the traffic back in - so you need to ask yourself
"what source address are my packets generating"
"how will external devices route back in"
It looks like you've got the config right to send the packets
out. ( unless my very tired eyes have missed something )
