I tried adding a "ip route"  but this is rejected as no reponse from nexthop.

A router (or a layer 3 switch acting as a router) 'knows' any directly connected network per default via the ip configuration of its network interfaces. Hence, you mustn't configure static routes for destinations that represent directly connected networks and where the next hop would be a local IP address of the router itself (and your switch correctly refuses such an attempt). If you look at the routing table of your switch, you would see, that networks and are already present and marked as "directly connected" (or with a metric value of 1).

Moreover it is your Internet router where you have to place a route for (with next hop =, not the switch (it already has one implicitely).

What appart from default route is the static route configuration useful for ?

For example, if you had a 3rd router connected to (assumed to have the address, that connects to a 3rd LAN, you would have to configure the route "net next hop" within your switch.
