WIFI and LAN at same times

Specs: Windows XP

Here a situation - where i need a WIFI Connection for accessing internet but at the same times LAN connection must be disconnect , if not the connection will be default to LAN Connection - that's mean internet connection lost. I need this LAN connection also for accessing files and remote PC since I'm using VNC System, That's mean WIFI and LAN must be enabled at same times!

Why can't you connect to the Internet through the LAN connection and do away with the wi-fi. The bandwidth the Inernet will use is tiny compared to the bandwidth avaialble through a LAN.

1) Wanderer! If i disable the gateaway, i'm experiencing difficult in remote PC using VNC and can't connect to the files that are in the network!
2) StuartS if i connect to LAN Connection there are no internet connection! This LAN Connection is for remote PC and also sharing files in network only...

I have came across a setting in a Command Prompt that can enable two connection at the same times , WIFI and LAN that was given by my friends long times ago, but i've lost it, any help will do...thanks!

There is nothing you can do in a command prompt that will change the fact you can't have two gateway entries. System will only use one.

You can change the metric on the gateway. This means you put a higher metric on the gateway you don't want to use as a default.

You change this under tcp/ip properties.

" i'm experiencing difficult in remote PC using VNC and can't connect to the files that are in the network! "

This is not right. If you have two pcs networked they do not need a gateway entry on either to communicate via RDP/VNC or network access between them. A gateway is where tcp/ip shoves everything it can't resolve locally.

So what do you mean access a remote pc on your lan?
What is your ip and what is its ip?
In VNC are you using the host name or the ip address to connect with?

We will be seeing you back soon if you pursue ICS as your solution. :-) You have some ip surprises ahead.

There still is no good reason why you can't access the lan side with no gateway. You have something you are not including information wise like your lan is actually connecting to another router that you VNC thru.
