Multiple network cards on a W6 machine?


Recommended Posts

Hi folks,


I've got a network of 1x Production and 2x Display machines, all running Windows 7.


Each machine contains 2x network cards, call it 'Network A' for the Watchout network and 'Network B' for networked audio distribution, as our venue is quite large.


In configuring the Watchout machines, I have no problem in getting Windows to see and ping each of the IPs, but Watchout seems determined to grab onto the IP from 'Network B'.


How can I instruct Watchout which network card I want it to listen to?

I do not think the gateway setting is the solution. I believe you need to change the default NIC (highest Priority).

reference:  Microsoft Article ID: 2526067 How to change the network connection priority in Windows 7


So when the settings were opened,
it was set to default to Local Area Connection 3
Using the green arrow changed it to default to Local Area Connection 2,
restart after making this change to be sure it takes effect.
