What should I make my default gateway for my Domain Controller? Should it be the same as its IP address or something else?

It should be the same IP address as your gateway for the subnet that your domain controller is on.
If you don't know what this means, you should run far away from your computer and hire someone that knows what they are doing. Gateways are an elementary networking principle.
Completely agree with MarkM, hire a professional, but in the spirit of amusing myself:
A Default Gateway is a Router (or simulation of a router) that will be sent all network data for networks that are not on the local subnet.
For example the local subnet: 192.168.0.1 / 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway: 192.168.0.5
All data sent from the computer to any 192.168.0.x address will go out on the local network interface.
All data sent to any other address (for example 192.168.1.10) will be forwarded to the Default Gateway (192.168.0.5) for forwarding onto the appropriate network link that can access the 192.168.1.x subnet.
