Bridging Subnets via Secondary Router

Dear Experts,

I need to bridge 2 subnets but the router I am using is not the primary gateway  for the  network.   The routing works fine if I make my router the default gateway in Windows but if I make it the secondary gateway it doesn't work.    Can anyone suggest a way to make windows look to a secondary gateway if it can't find the address via the first.    I am using IP addresses not names.

What router do you have?  You should create static routes going through that router.  Then depending on what type of router it is you can set a priorty level.  You can make it the same for load balancing, or give it a lower priority.

Let me know. Good Luck.
