Internet Connection 1 (Various ip's)----- Computer ----- LAN router (192.168.0.101) ------ Internet Connection 2 (Various IP's)
In case the diagram is confusing "Computer" connects directly to a modem, and thus the internet, It is also connected to a router (Via a different network card) The router is connected to the internet. So essentially "Computer" has 2 paths to the internet, through 2 network cards.
"Computer" has 2 network cards. Of course there are various other computers connected to the router, but that should be irrelevant. What I want is for "computer" to use Internet Connection 1 for ALL internet traffic. If Connection 1 goes down, that computer has NO internet. All other traffic will route through the router, and the various other computers in the home. The IP address of computers connected to the router is 192.168.0.2-255 The router ip address is 192.168.0.1. "Computer" runs windows xp pro sp3.
I would also like to know if there is a way to make it so "Computer" would use internet connection 1 all the time if available, and if not, then use internet connection, but to NEVER use connection 2 for internet if connection 1 is available.
