Solved Using two browsers to connect via LAN and tethered WiFi

July 27, 2012 at 07:02:22
Specs: Windows 7
I work at a client site which lets contractors connect via a proxy Ethernet connection. A lot of URLs (e. g. webmail) are blocked though for security reasons. The rest of the time I switch over to a tethered 4G connection, having to change the proxy configuration in my browser(s). I use both IE and Firefox. I know that the laptop connects to both networks simultaneously, but the Ethernet connection is given priority when connected.

Is there a way to have say my Firefox browser configured to use the tethered connection using no proxy, while simultaneously having my IE use the Ethernet connection with the proxy configuration?

Regards,


Henrik

"I know that the laptop connects to both networks simultaneously"

As far as I'm aware, Windows can use only one type of connection at any one time.

Only one gateway can exist. You can use two connections if wan and lan [with no gateway]
