I have Two ethernet cards / Connections

How can I tell windows to set Eth1 as default so web,steaming all the normal stuff uses this connection?

I have set bittorrent up correctly to use the other connection but after a restart windows starts to use the bittorrent one. And if I change bittorrent to use the other one It just does the very same thing on the next reboot.

Change priority to an adapter by moving it up in the Connections list.

Click OK.
