Need help routing with a quad nic server

Posted on 2012-09-16
Last Modified: 2012-11-05
Ok lets say I have 2 teamed connections going to my LAN under ip dedicated as the servers LAN address. This server is 2008 ad/exchange.

Ok now I have 2 more ports I can use. One of them I want to connect directly to my mikrotik router which has been designated as, and it is connected to my dsl modem.

I want this server to send any traffic needing to go to the internet to that extra port connected to the mikrotik.

How can I go about doing this? Perhaps route add in cmd? Below is a copy and paste of my current static routes...

    Your default route is going to the Mikrotik already, so this is fine. Your issue is, however, that you will have two 192.168.16.x networks, which is no good. It is best to give the Mikrotik an IP address of another network, like, and the same for your "new" NIC.
    If you cannot change the Mikrotik IP, you can split your current network into two, e.g. (current NIC) and (new NIC). That allows IPs 1-246 to be on the current network, and 249-254 on the new one (of which you only need 252 and one for the NIC).

    Your clients will not be able to use the router, unless they set up as default gateway.

    BTW, I'm not certain whether you can directly connect the Mikrotik router to the NIC - Gb NICs can auto-detect cross-over cabling if needed, but 100Mb usually do not and need to be switched, if able to do that at all. You might have to either use a cross-over Ethernet cable or a switch/hub.
