Configuring Multiple Internet Sources

Discussion in 'Windows Networking' started by Adam S. Kirschner, Aug 29, 2007.

  1. Hey Guys -

    I have 2 individual networks that I would like to connect to simultaneously.
    They are on different subnets. When I enable both, I only have access to one
    of the networks, when I bridge them, I have the same problem.

    The only way to use both is to use one at a time and I have to disable the
    one I don't want to use.

    Is there a setting I can set so I can have both running simultaneously? I've
    searched Google but I was unable to find anything.

    Thanks for any help.

  4. Hello,

    You can't use both gateway at the same time through windows.

    You may configure both on the same subnet like this:
    pc: 192.168.0.1
    gateway 1: 192.168.0.253
    gateway 2: 192.168.0.254

    If the first goes down (windows can't ping it anymore), it will switch to
    the backup one.

    Hope it helps,

  5. Thanks, this is useful.

    Now for the next problem:

    I'm using Windows Mobile's Internet Sharing to get online (the internet is
    currently down in my office). Is it possible to change the gateway settings
    on windows mobile so I can match my office's subnet? They are both
    192.168.x.x

  6. You may post to the windows mobile forum, but i don't think you can have 2
    gateway on windows mobile.

    As it is an office, you may push the twon gateway trhough dhcp lease.
