I have recently installed Vista on my desktop PC which seems to be having
Internet Connection problems. My Desktop PC has 2 Network Adaptors each
connected to separate routers. I have one router (A) with IP 192.168.1.1 on
Adaptor A and another router (B) with IP 192.168.2.1 on Adaptor B. The only
router with Internet Access is router B. The problem I have is when I open
internet explorer it seems to take a very long time to display the home page,
and some times it times-out completely. If I open up a command prompt and
type tracert www.google.com

This implies that it is trying to get to google via Router A which has no
Internet access. I can only guess then it gives up after some time and tries
the second Network Connection.
Is there any way I can set Vista so that it looks for Internet Access on
Router B first, and not Router A? I've tried various things such as changing
the Network Binding order Under Advanced in Network Connections but this does
This did not happen under XP - XP seemed to know which Adaptor had Internet
Access without a delay/timeout.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
