    Default GA-EX58-UD5 [Dual Lan]

    Hi,

    I have a GA-EX58-UD5 motherboard and it has a dual lan connection. What I don't need is to bridge the connection and use it for a very fast internet.

    I have a fast Cable connection on connection 1 and I have a slower (but unlimited download) ADSL connection with connection 2.

    What I do want to do is:
    Use connection 1 for only internet use (like firefox, internet explorer)
    Use connection 2 for dowload use (like flashget, IDM)

    I use WIndows 7 x64 ultimate, so can I do this in the internet connection properties or do I have to install a 3th party app?

    I have used google, but I can only find people that want to bridge the connection to have a faster internet, but I dont need that. I want to be able to download with IDM on my slow ADSL and still have fast internet with my cable.

    You can't use it in the way which you want.
    you cant say dedicate one NIC for browser and another for something else, it just doesnt work like that.

    What you can do however, is create a team connection out of the two.

    Download the latest Realtek Ethernet Diagnostics Utility from the UD5 downloads page, It will let you team the two connections into one faster one, provided your networking hardware (switch/router) can support a teamed connection aswel'.

    Thanks for the reply, I really find it too bad that it can't work like that. I really can't understand why because this is only software related.
    (IDM should only use connection 2 and firefox only connectin 1).

    I thought I found a solution in the Windows Firewall because you can say that only a program can use a home or a public connection. But when I changed my connection 2 to public and said that Flashget only could use public it still downloaded from connection 1 (so that was a bust).

    I already downloaded all the latest updates from Gigabyte, but as I said in my first post I don't want a teamed connection, because that doesn't give me an advantage. I already have a fast internet connection, I just want to use my slower connection for downloads only because it has unlimited download from my ISP and my other cable connection has a small limit so that would still give me fast internet only speed.

    Because now when I download with my ADSL connection I really can't be going online, because the speed for internet and download is just to slow.

    Is this only Windows related, or if I switch to Linux (lets say Ubuntu) then this would become possible?

    I don't think you can do what you want with any OS. The only way I think that would be possible would be to manually disconnect one or the other when you wanted to use one. If both are needed at once then this of course would not be possible

    After some long searching in google, I found that it is really software related because a torrent client as vuze can do it.

    I want to bind my flashget program to my eth0 and not use eth1 (like the pic shows that it is possible in vuze).


    So why is it not possible to add this simple instruction into more apps for people with dual lan.

    Also this app is what I'm looking for ForceBindIP (but if there is a better one or with a grafical layout)

    Ahh, so it is possible! Nice to know

    Not sure why more apps or programs do not allow this then?

    Forcebind is downloadable at that link right? Just confused as to what your last comment means since you said you are looking for it.

    Well I only found it because I have been searching for it all day long, but I don't use a torrent client so vuze really doens't help me.

    And I just edited my last post so I didn't double post something in here.

    So if somebody else also wants to do this he can find a solution in here.

    Ive found with mine, when i have both my ethernet connections plugged in that the DHCP on my router only assigns an address to one of the two NICs.

    I think this is pretty common, for most systems.
    if you want to find a way to have both NICs connected to the internet, I believe you need to setup a static connection for both.

    I have found the solution, this is the app (without grafical layout) but it does what I want.
    ForceBindIP - Bind any Windows application to a specific interface

    I only created a *.bat file and created a shortcut to it on my desktop if I want to run a program on a specific eth-port.

    So if anybody has this problem I can assure you that it works like a charm.

    Example of a *.bat file:
    ForceBindIP -i {9EF71B38-9648-4E29-B752-4561455AFBF4} "C:\Program Files (x86)\Download\Firefox\firefox.exe"

    the {*-*-*-*} is the name of my eth0-port (dynamic range) you only need to change this to the other name of the eth1-port if you want Firefox to use the other Port.

    Great to see you found a fix, and thanks for posting about this for others.
