Static Route Question

I have a PC with 2 NICs.  They connect to two very separate networks.  When I do a ROUTE PRINT, I get this back:

0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 10.49.102.1 10.49.102.11
0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 192.168.11.254 192.168.11.116

Is this saying what I *think* it is saying?  ALL traffic is attempting to route out both interfaces?  In fact, all traffic should be trying to route out the 192 interface, and only 2 IPs (set up as static persistent routes) should be trying to route out the 10 interface.  

Is this correct?

When you do a route print there should also be a metric column, the lowest one is at the top.  I believe you can change this so that the metric for the second entry is lower (or set the first to be higher).  This way you can divert traffic in the right direction.

I'd do a "tracert www.google.com" or to other IP addresses on both networks and see if it is really using the correct gateway for each network. If everything seems to work, and all traffic is going through the top one as I suspect then maybe your routers are set to point traffic in the right direction.

Forgot all about the metric count!  Thanks!
