Windows 7: Multiple networks results in loss of WAN

14 Aug 2012   #1

Win 7 x64
Multiple networks results in loss of WAN

Lost my WAN. I am troublshooting router/ modem issues so I am direct connected to my modem bypassing my router. but to maintain my LAN for sharing I am using a wireless dongle as I only have one ethernet port. as soon as my wireless is connected Windows 7 drops internet from the ethernet. even if I have net then merge the connections.

I just had a fresh install a few weeks ago, nothings been tweaked cuz for the most part it works.

help is much appreciated. searching for this is hard as queries pick up everything with the word internet and network


Realtek RTL8168C(P)/8111C(P) Family PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC (NDIS 6.20)
Asus USB-N53(drivers installed only, no utilities)
Asus RT-N56U Router(not the one with issues but a temp LAN router for future replacement)
