multiple connections
I'm running vista and ie7. Question: if I have multiple connections to
wireless internet, how do I control which one a particular instance if ie7 is
using? I need to have several copies of ie7 open, each with its own
connection.
thanks.

I'm sorry, but that isn't possible. When multiple Internet
connections are available, Windows chooses one of them and uses it for
all Internet access. There's no way to associate a specific program
(or program instance) with a specific Internet connection.

You can route connections by destination IP address, though that would defeat
the benefits of using DNS. If each IE7 window was opened to address a specific
distant host, by IP address, in theory a different connection could be used.
You would have to tweak the Static Route table though.
