I have 2 network connections on my laptop, one with my phone tethered and the other to a wireless network. I am just playing around with it and i would like to be able to route browser/rdp traffic through the tethered phone, and all other traffic through the wireless network. is this possible?

You should be able to do that by creating a routing table on your computer.

For example, make the phone  connection the default route

Route add 0.0.0.0 mask 0.0.0.0 <IP address of the phone I/F> -p

Then create routes to your local LAN using the same format:

Route add <IP of your local segment (192.168.1.0 mask 255.255.255.0>) <router IP> -p

Route add <IP of any other local LANs (192.168.3.0 mask 255.255.255.0)> <router IP> -p

I don't think you can route on a per protocol base in windows,only by destination ip ranges. So unless the rdp is to a specific ip ( you can use that to route), it will be difficult to accomplish.

I did miss the RDP part of the post. HTTP traffic should be fairly easy to do and I'd think your connection to an RDP host would be possible to route, but anything that the remote host does would use it's own default routes.
