We are having issues with our ISP provider in the area. There is a UPstream interferance for the whole area and progressively gets worse as the day goes on. They unfortunately can not give me a time frame to have the issue resolved sinis a area wide issue.

So I went out and picked up a 4G card and wireless USB adapter. I am trying to set it up so the when the services starts to get bad through the lan have the traffic go through the wireless adapter.

So I i when under the advanced network settings and alerted their binding orders. This did not seem to make any difference at all. The traffic still tired to go out through the lan despite it was timing out out.

I know i must be missing something, but this dual nic setup is new to me.

you can change the routing by route add command in the command prompt

to check what is happening on the system..
1. give command in command prompt. route print and see what is the default gateway and it's metric... the lower the metric it will route traffic through it...

What you are trying to do is called Ling Aggregation Control Protocol.. (LACP)

It's difficult to do, and can mess up your routing table and you will have routing traffic problems.

I am going to put you on the right track.. Not many have actually got this to work.

Best bet, with a few clients, Disable ONE adapter and go to the other when the problems persist.

Also, make sure your ISP signs a Service Level Agreement (SLA) and hold them to a particular amount of service that they promise for your money. If they fail to provide the services according to the SLA, then fine them by demanding they reduce their monthly fees. All negotiations for your SLA will be drawn on paper and it's a legal document once signed around.

Windows 7 is more robust when using multiple interfaces. You can set them to default to one another as one drops with one interface as the default (if available).
