Can I use LAN (with proxy settings) and wireless connection (without proxy settings) at the same time?
Posted on 2006-06-07
I'm using a laptop at work connected to company's network (with firewall and proxy enabled). I cannot go onto sites such as gmail, mail.yahoo, etc. But, there is also an availble DSL wireless connection that I can connect to (no proxy/firewall), which I cannot access company's intranet.
If I was want to switch from company LAN to wireless connection, I have to disable the LAN connection, enable the wireless, remove the proxy settings in internet browser, but I won't have access to the compay's intranet/email when I'm on the wireless.
Is there any way I can use the wireless connection and company LAN at the same time? Maybe have a different browser such as Firefox use the wireless connection, and the rest of the applications/IE brower use the LAN. Is this possible?
Any help would be appreciated!
