    Load balancing internet connections for a multi-homed Windows machine

    In this article, I try to walk you through connecting your (multi-homed) computer to multiple networks, and make them work simultaneously to load balance your internet traffic, to increase speed, and/or for redundancy.

    Thanks Mr Spock.

    I have up to 3 devices connected to my router at any one time, so this may come in handy.

    Hello MrSpock,

    Thanks for your article.

    Is that what you wrote?

    Adapter Metric box n°1 = 24
    Gateway metric box n°1 = 2

    Adapter Metric box n°2 = 25
    Gateway metric box n°2 = 1

    Thanks for your confirmation.

    Regards,
    Christophe

    Hello Christophe,

    Glad you found it helpful, and thank you for joining! :thumbsup: (y)

    Yes, exactly as you wrote above. This gives them both equal total metric values of 26, so Windows routes traffic between the two interfaces equally.
