traffice routing in windows 10

by X__ / October 14, 2015 10:20 PM PDT

Hi, Good Day!

On my laptop (windows-10), I have 2 network interfaces to work in parallel.

1. Wifi device connected to USB port (
2. LAN connectivity connected through cable (

I need to route all traffic of other than sub-net (which is actually my internet access requests) to sub-net

Please share your opinion to get this done.

P.S. both interfaces are in working state, but my internet traffic is also traversing through sub-net, which should be through

Clarification Request
Did you examing the routes with NET ROUTE?
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / October 15, 2015 4:40 AM PDT

If not, you won't know. But I must preface that use of NET ROUTE is not something I'll write about as that is on the web. I'll point out the commands to look at the route but as you are the one that must maintain your system, you must command the skills to control it. Look at the route and change it with net route as needed. Be sure to check the gateway and default route too.

Hi, Thanks for your reply R.Proffitt.

I need to route outgoing internet traffic. how can I add route if I don't know the destination ip/hostname (internet)

route ADD MASK

what to write here "above underline bold/underline address" : )
that's why I have asked about how can I specify a route which can specify that if outgoing traffic is not of sub-net then route it to gateway

That's what the netmask is for.

Remember I don't repeat what's on the web about IP networking. You must know your routes and the commands to change it if need be.

But in short the adapter IP, netmask determine what addresses are on that LAN and when it doesn't fall inside the netmask that set the LAN address range then it's sent to the gateway.
