I have a corporate internet connection available in ethernet and wi-fi. Also theres a regular connection available only as wi-fi.

Is there some way to keep connected to corporate internet connection due to having to work on domain sites and also use the other connection for unrestricted internet access. Currently when I connect via cable to corporate and wireless to other network, the proxy restrictions still apply.

I'm using windows 8

Maybe you are using an operating systems that let you choose at fork time which NIC has to be used by each process, maybe not. – uprego Nov 22 '13 at 8:48

You could create a default route ( = "Standard gateway) for your wireless network and add specific routes using the corporate network for intranet IPs.

Wouldn't this affect my work domain? Would I still be able to connect to domain sites? – mechanicum Nov 22 '13 at 15:43
If you add specific routes using your corporate network for the domain sites everything should work just fine. – Robber Nov 23 '13 at 14:05
I'll give this a try. Will return back with the results – mechanicum Nov 27 '13 at 13:35
