2nd NIC on different network messes up my VPN connection on primary network

I have two NICs in my system, they are connected to different networks. NIC 1 is our primary data LAN which has a site-to-site VPN connection to another location. NIC 2 is to our VoIP LAN that goes through my phone. I used to be able to have them both enabled at the same time and access everything fine.

However, now if I have my voice NIC enabled I can't get over the VPN but I can still access the internet and things locally. I have changed the adapter binding order so NIC 1 is first but I dunno what happened. Running Windows 7.

Perhaps something changed in the routing/default gateway?

Nuh uh, I am in control of that and have not made any changes that should affect it.

So this time it was getting DCHP, I set it to a static IP on the VoIP network with no gateway and I am back in business, thanks.

Remember, with MS, don't assume anything ;)
