I have an MPLS network. One site x.x.7.0 is over utilizing the bandwidth on the MPLS with INET traffic.
I have purchased another internet connection with a larger pipe that I want to offload all internet traffic for the location to.
I am trying to use static routes set up on each PC to accomplish this. I have the MPLS gateway as x.x.7.1 I have the INET gateway set up as x.x.7.254. I set up two static routes on each workstation. I would like the default gateway to stay x.x.7.1 so as not to interfere with MPLS traffic. These are the steps I have followed.
1. Set NIC on PC to x.x.7.10 mask 255.255.0.0, gateway x.x.7.1
2. open CMD as admin, route delete 0.0.0.0
3. add route 0.0.0.0 mask 0.0.0.0 x.x.7.254 -p
4. add route x.x.1.0 (mpls traffic) mask 255.255.0.0 x.x.7.1 -p
Step three blows out the default gateway on the NIC and nukes the MPLS traffic. I just need to add the .254 route for Internet traffic while keeping the default gateway on the NIC x.x7.1
What am I missing?
