One Wired, one wireless, force internet to wireless

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by George W. Barrowcliff, Jan 28, 2009.

  1. XP Pro svc pak III

    I have two connections on a desktop, one wired to a local router with ip
    range of 192.168.1.x and the wireless connection is on another
    network at 192.168.100.1.

    Both connections are up and operable but the only internet access is via
    the wireless connection.

    I also have a laptop connected to the wireless router with internet access.

    How can I force IE to connect via the wireless instead of the wired?

    TIA, GWB

  2. Hi
    Adjust the metrics to prefer Wireless (or unplug the wire).
