Connect to two networks from one machine...
I am currently running Windows Vista Ultimate on a Dell laptop. I am using the built-in wireless NIC to connect to a Linksys Wireless Access point which is connected to my office computer network. I am also (trying) to use my Clearwire Internet PCMCIA Adapter (it's a satellite Internet Service Provider) at the same time.

I want to use the wireless NIC connection (we'll call it the Office Connection) to access my LAN resources (Exchange Server, Printers, Network Folders, etc). DHCP is enabled. To access the Internet, I have to connect to a proxy server.

I want to use the satellite NIC connection (the Clearwire PCMCIA one) to access the Internet. The card uses a simple piece of software to initiate the card, connect to the network, and authenticate my account. Card doesn't work if the software is turned off. DHCP is enabled. When the office connection is disabled, it's a direct connection to the Internet, no proxy server.


So, in a nutshell, I want Vista to use my wireless connection for my Outlook, Printers, and Network Resources. I want Vista to use my Clearwire connection for the Internet.

I tried bridging the two, but that didn't work. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi
You can Not use the web with both, but you can use the web with the
Clearwire, and use the other card for LAN connection.
First set the metrics to prefer the Clearwire,
http://www.ezlan.net/metrics.html
Then unbind File and Printer sharing from the Clearwire, and bind Sharing
only to the TCP/IP of the second card.

Hmmm, well... the Internet redirect is working. But now I'm trying to figure out how to tell specific programs which connection to use.

For example, I use Microsoft Outlook connected to an Exchange server on the wireless network (not the Clearwire network). While other programs, such as Trillian or Logitech need to use the Clearwire account.

Any ideas on this particular challenge?

Re: Connect to two networks from one machine...

So the proposed setup works for Internet. But I cannot access my
Microsoft Exchange Server using this method.

Here's the current setup:


NAME
"Local Area Connection" (this is a wired connection to my Clearwire
modem, satellite Internet)

STATUS
Network 3, Shared

CONNECTIVITY
Access to Local and Internet

NETWORK TYPE
Public

OWNER
System

CONNECTION PROPERTIES
_ Client for Microsoft Networks (not enabled)
x QoS Packet Scheduler
_ File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks (not enabled)
x TCP/IPv6
x TCP/IPv4
x Link-Layer Topology Discovery Mapper I/O Driver
x Link-Layer Topology Discovery Responder

TCP/IP PROPERTIES
x Obtain IP address automatically
x Obtain DNS server address automatically

Interface metric: 10



NAME
"Local Area Connection 3" (this is a wired connection to my workplace
switch)

STATUS
"name of work domain"

CONNECTIVITY
Access to Local only

NETWORK TYPE
Private

OWNER
System

CONNECTION PROPERTIES
x Client for Microsoft Networks
x QoS Packet Scheduler
x File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks
x TCP/IPv6
x TCP/IPv4
x Link-Layer Topology Discovery Mapper I/O Driver
x Link-Layer Topology Discovery Responder

TCP/IP PROPERTIES
x Obtain IP address automatically
x Obtain DNS server address automatically

Interface metric: 20



QUESTION
How can I get this setup to keep my satellite connection to the
Internet but still keep in touch with Microsoft Exchange via Outlook on
my Local network?

Any thoughts from the Route Table wizards out there?
