Windows 7: NIC specific application setting in Windows 7

NIC specific application setting in Windows 7

Hello,

I need some help. I have a PC running Windows 7 Home Basic. The PC has a LAN interface and a WiFi interface. Both the LAN and WiFi have individual IP addresses and connects to two different routers.

What I'm trying to do is have IE10 connect only through the LAN card that connects to my computer's router. & have all other applications use the WiFi adapter to connect to the internet.

So far, I have tried to use ForceBindIP to bind the applications and use Route command to route the traffic.. but will no success.

Can someone please provide me detailed steps to go about this?

Any help you can provide will be appreciated.

Hi and welcome to Seven Forums.

I do not think this is possible to do I would think they would interfere with each other.

EDIT: The only way to do this would be to have them connecting to different networks (eg. 192.168.1.1 for wired - then 192.168.2.1 for wireless)

Thanks for your reply...

Well, I'm not sure how to go about doing this then... I got it to work using ForceBindIp but it is not a permanent solution.

Let's put in a scenario where in I have two routers.

1. Router 1 - Connecting to the net (internet)
2. Router 2 - Meant to connect for a company VPN.

I want to use IE10 and configure it in such a way that when I'm putting in google.com or yahoo.com it connects via Router 1 but when I put in say "http:\\10.92.1.1\login.asp it connects via Router 2.

How can I make this happen? Is there any programming or software available that I can use?

Ya they are connected to two completely different networks.

The WiFi gets its IP address automatically from the router (gateway 192.168.1.1)

The LAN has static IP like 10.92.1.6

That's what we want to avoid. Reason being, we need to concurrently use IE10 that connects to a website that my company hosts on their server and then use the WiFi to access internet and get emails on Outlook.

Unfortunately, the company gateway does not provide us with internet access so we need to use a different router to get internet.

Are there any applications / softwares available that can route my traffic through the specific NIC once I put a request through my browser?

For example, when I type Google or MSN.com it routs the traffic through the WiFi .. and when I type in 10.92.1.1 it routes it through the LAN?

We are not using a VPN. My office is a dealership outlet for cars. We need to access the DMS (Distribution Management System) through a web browser login; e.g. http://10.92.1.1\login.asp ... Now, this connection is given to us through a CISCO router and we access this through a LAN connection on our PCs.

Oh I understand you now. I thought you were trying to access you company from at home on a vpn sorry.

Yes what your doing is hard maybe to do. Maybe there is a program. The only way I can think of is using a virtual machine such as VMplayer (Free) or VirtualBox (Free) and within the virtual machine you can use it one the internet or even the DMS

I have been struggling with this for the last few weeks... I could get it to work using ForceBindIp and Route command.. but then it isn't a permanent solution. Let me try the virtual box and see if it works...
