  1. If you have multiple computers your will likely need to get a dual wan router to control this mostly to avoid the hassle of setting it up in many computers.

    To do it with just a computer especially one that has only 1 ethernet port you need to cable differently. You want to able the 2 internet router lan ports together. I would leave the one that does browsing be the normal default gateway and give out DHCP to the users. The other router I would assign a different address and disable DHCP. So lets assume you give your main router 192.168.1.1 and your router you want to use for gaming 192.168.1.2.

    You have 2 options in the PC. If you manually want to switch this back and forth open a command window as administrator and issue
    Route delete 0.0.0.0
    Then
    Route add 0.0.0.0 mask 0.0.0.0 192.168.1.1
    or
    Route add 0.0.0.0 mask 0.0.0.0 192.168.1.2

    This will cause it to use a different path to the internet.

    Your other option if you know all the ip addresses of the game server.

    Put in a 0.0.0.0 route to 192.168.1.1 which sends everything to your main router. Now for each game serer put in a route command
    Say you know the game server uses 123.123.123.123 ip address.

    Route add 123.123.123.123 mask 255.255.255.255 192.168.1.2


    If you put in all the game servers the pc will use both connection at the same time selecting the proper one for gaming and browsing.

    If you have a lot of machine I would use a dual wan router. You will have to do similar tricks with listing the gaming servers but it is all done in one device.

    That is not a router I have seen much before. The little I know about it appears to be similar to a DD-WRT firmware load and uses similar commands. Almost everything is based on the mangle command. It is one of the most confusing commands I have ever seen.

    Other than provide this link I can be of little help on this router. Last time I tried something advanced like this on a dd-wrt router that uses almost the same commands I got mad and use a commercial cisco router instead.

    This site is one of the most stubborn I have seen in a while. You will need to search for PCC yourself on the below link
