Dual NICs in Vista = problematic Tags: NICs Windows Vista NIC Networking Last response: April 15, 2008 5:56 PM in Networking Share pennyfan87 April 13, 2008 7:37:14 PM Hey dudes. Basically, I have 2 NICs, running Vista Ultimate 32bit. I need a way to force windows to use one of the NICs for internet stuff (Firefox, IE), without disabling the other NIC (I need it for a LAN). Windows keeps defaulting to the wrong NIC, but when I disable that NIC, it goes to the correct one. I'd like to keep both enabled. Thanks!

Why do you need two network connections? Why not just do everything through the lan? pennyfan87 April 15, 2008 5:56:22 PM each nic is on a seperate network. the second nic is virtual, to connect to a lan far far away. i need both.
