Route Table problem with new Toshiba laptop

    I have a new Toshiba laptop with built-in 802.11g wireless interface
    in addition to the Ethernet port. I am running WinXP MCE. I have a
    proxy server with one NIC connected to the Internet via cable modem
    and the other NIC connected to a 10/100 switch for the rest of the
    devices in the house. I have a wireless access point connected to the
    switch to provide wireless access to three laptops and one desktop.

    The other two laptops and the desktop have no problems accessing the
    Internet.

    The Toshiba behaves as follows:

    Only Ethernet port active: No problems
    Ethernet port and wireless port active: No problems
    Only wireless port active: Sometimes works great but usually times
    out


    When the wireless port is the only active connection, there are no
    issues with accessing other devices on the LAN...only the Internet
    causes problems. So I suspect the problem is a routing table issue
    and not a radio issue.


    Here is the routing table when only the wireless port is active:

    I suspect the problem is with the metric setting but I don't know how
    to change that.

    Thanks.
