Windows 7: question about handling 2 internet connections

question about handling 2 internet connections

hi all

i recently ran into a problem while playing DCUniverse online, basically my ISP router sucks

i have a cable connection from time warner

i also have sprint unlimited, so i can tether my phone to my pc and use that internet connection

as i type this, i have both connections running, but windows 7 is using the cable connection first

what i would like to know is, is there any way i can keep my cable connection AND sprint connections enabled simultaneously, but run only dcuniverse through the sprint connection

thanks, any help is appreciated

Per computer can only handle one internet connection at a time unless you go all out and get a Duel Internet Connection Router or by someway make Windows 2008 Server work like that especially when that is what that OS does best but I haven't messed around with that OS to even know if it can do that.

I know that OS can bridge networks but when it comes to duel internet connections. You may run into a big problem without the Duel Wan Router.

Try this and see if any change.... go into the Properties of each connection (right click on it) > select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) > click Properties -> click Advanced > uncheck Automatic metric in the bottom and set a number between 1 and 9999 where the smaller the number the higher the connection priority.
