Windows 7: Win 7 Pro Load Balancing to different programs

Win 7 Pro Load Balancing to different programs


I know there are plenty of posts regarding load balancing, but I read all of them and couldn't find the answer for me. What everybody wants is to sum their internet links, what I want is kinda different...

I have two Internet links here, one 10Mbit cable and other 4Mbit ADSL.
What I want is a way to make some programs use the 10Mbit and others use the 4Mbit.
For example, force all the games to use the 4Mbit link, uTorrent and Firefox to 10Mbit link.

Is it possible? Could be a software.

It's the same thing. Same problem. Same solutions: virtualization or load balancing.

Here's an idea I my brain just farted: if your games connect to fixed destination IPs you can route them through your 4mbit nic, leaving the 10mbit one as the primary path.
Start->cmd, run as admin. Type "route" and get busy. I'd start with "route print".
