Using separate interconnect connections at sa

May 20, 2009 at 19:52:13
Specs: Windows XP
I am having 2 ADSL connections for my internet. One main connection is say A (192.168.1.1) and other connection is say B (192.168.1.2). Both these modems are connected to Switch. My PC is connected to Switch. All IPs are static, no DHCP. Both A and B internets are available to my PC. I keep both modems on all the time and when I need to switch from A to B on my PC, I simply change the gateway and DNS in my local area network setting in PC. I use NetSetMan freeware to keep on switching between 2 internets (NetSetMan changes the IP and DNS and Gateway quickly with shortcuts).

I am looking to use both connections A and B for separate softwares at same time. e.g. I want to use connection B for my MSN and Yahoo messengers and at the same time I want to use connection A for my other internet use. Any way or software for such thing?

The only way you can hope to accomplish this is if you have software that you can tell to use a certain specific gateway. Since the TCP/IP settings are configured in Windows, and not in the software, this isn't likely to be possible.

It's worth noting that MSN and Yahoo messengers don't use up enough bandwidth to slow down whatever else it is you're doing at the same time as chatting.

You have two choices.

1. put in a dual wan port router which will combine and provide wan failover.

2. load a virtual OS [vmware or ms virtual pc both are free] and set the virtual to one gateway and your host session to the other.
