I have a problem with my desktop the OS is Win7 Pro 64bit,
I use this PC to run PLC software across the Ethernet connection that PLC controls my aquarium.
to surf the internet I have a USB wireless connection.
All of the above works great. My problem is some software is trying to access the internet across that ethernet connection which it obviously can't since I have that connected to the PLC. SolidWorks, Itunes, a couple of online video games cannot connect to the internet because I am getting "cannot connect to server" error messages.
How do I redirect these programs to route through the wireless connection and not across the ethernet connection?
Things I have tried.
installing the programs and reinstalling them.
Disconnecting my firewall
Adding these programs to the "allow these programs to connect via windows firewall" settings.
No help all of the above programs still have the same problem, the odd thing is I downloaded Itunes and the video games onto this PC (I am connected right now via this PC the one I am having problems with) but when the game tries to connect to the internet I get the error message.
Anyone out there have any ideas to what I should try next?
Thank you in advance for any info.
