    I'm sorry if this has been answered already but I haven't had much luck finding it - probably because I'm not sure exactly what to search for.

    I have 10 computers and a Slingbox and I want to be able to use my RV042 to dedicate the Slingbox and one of the computers to the faster WAN (WAN1) because of bandwidth restrictions. I want to be able to use the other (WAN2) with no bandwidth restrictions to transfer lots of data that would put me way over my ISPs limits on WAN1.

    How do I link specific fixed internal IP's to a specific WAN. Lets say my sons game computer ( and the Slingbox (192.168.237) to WAN1 and everything else to WAN2? I have spent quite a bit of time experimenting with protocol binding and rate control but they don't seem to be what I'm looking for.

    Thank you, any help is greatly appreciated.

    I guess first off do you actually have two different isp connections?

    Hi ifican,

    I'm a bit of a neophyte but I know enough to know I need 2 ISPs. :biggrin: I can see how my original wording was a bit unclear.

    Yes, on WAN1 I have a wireless ISP (fixed IP) connection with 8Meg Down 2Meg Up - the only problem with this ISP is they monitor bandwidth use pretty tightly. I also have a cable connection 5Meg Up 512k Down on WAN2.

    I'm hoping to use the fast WAN1 connection for my sons gaming computer and a Slingbox server in the house. Slingbox doesn't work very well with only 512k up. Everything else will work fine with the cable.
