Tethered Phone And LAN. How to choose what program uses what program.

Hello Tom's Hardware readers.

I have tried with no avail to find the solution to this issue. I cant think of a way around this problem without the use of third party software, but I want to be certain of this.

I have 2 connections available, my LAN, which is limited to 30GB per month and my phone connection which is unlimited. Now, I want my phone to take my surfing and movie downloading bandwidth while my lan takes my time sensitive (gaming) data. I am fed up with CS:S, Diablo, GW2 etc lagging due to using my phone connection. And im also fed up of my hd video streaming and skype interupting my gaming.

So, how can I tell Skype and FireFox/other browser to use Connection X and my games to use connection Y?

    So there is no way to force a connection to go via one route at all.

    They both have different Gateway IPs, surely there must be a way? Not even changing hkeys via a .bak file when I plug my phone in?
  3. Windows will direct all traffic to the primary card's Gateway
