Use DSL connection while a dial-up connection is present?

by Omegatylenol / March 22, 2007 3:08 PM PDT

First of all, is it possible? I've had problems hosting due to my private ip address and my ISP being a... yeah.

I was wondering if it was possible to tell what program to use what connection, or if I could make it to where my dsl was the primary connection. A little help? Happy

By the way, I'm using the Dial-up to get a global ip address for <person> to connect to.

It not possible to teach exactly why here, but you would have to 'subnet the internet.' Research subnetting to see why this is not a good idea.

Setting up Cisco Enterprise routers and configuring subnetting will give you a headache. Don't ask me how I know.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
