Have Windows Use Physical Network and Route Single Address / Subnet to Wi-Fi
Posted on 2013-06-25
Hey All -
Recently purchased a Seagate Plus Wireless drive which is really cool. What made it better is that I upgraded it to a "hacked" firmware which provided numerous additional features! I've got a question about it and connectivity, please.
Most of my workstations use Windows 7 x64 and have a physical network connection including my work PC. In fact, the internet at work uses Proxy to get access. The wireless drive connects - well - wirelessly of course. I connect to the wireless on my workstation mostly to map drives to a samba / smb share or to configure options.
If I connect to my wifeless drive on my workstation, it automatically starts to try to route most traffic though it instead of the physical connection. I've noticed that my RDP sessions stay, but web traffic does try and fail. The drive can be set up to passthrough the internet traffic, but I need to access the network on the Physical network - not another wireless one.
If I'm on my workstation and it's working properly, I can access web sites in IE or Chrome. I connect to the WiFi drive (leaving the physical connected) and all of a sudden I' can't browse in IE or Chrome anymore.
The wireless drive uses 188.8.131.52 subnet. Surely there's a way to configure Windows to route only that subnet to wi-fi and everything else physical - right?
Any ideas? Thanks!
