XP Networking

Can anyone point me at a resource to help me configure routing on my XP Pro box?

I've got a machine with two network interfaces. The first is ethernet connected to the companies internal network (172.21.x.x). The second is wireless connected to a DSL gateway.

I'm trying to setup routing so all traffic bound for the internal 172.21.x.x goes to the ethernet interface and everything else goes out the wireless interface gateway.

I've tooled around with the metric settings and adding/deleting routes (via ROUTE.EXE) without much luck.

Thanks Mat. I think it does help.

"multihomed" was the term I needed to Google.

OK, I'm stumped. Anyone care to take this on? I know enough about routing/gateways/subnets that I think I have plenty of built in assumptions and wrong notions as to how this stuff works. Therefore, I'm jacking everything up, but good.

Interface A is the ethernet and it's IP/gateway are This guy needs to "talk" to the 172.21.10.*, 172.21.20.* and 172.21.25.* subnets which are all on the internal corporate network.

Interface B is a wireless connection to a DSL router. IP/GW is

I want to route all traffic over Interface B unless it's destination is one of the three listed subnets. I know I'll need a series of "route add" statements, but I can't seem to get the specifics/order correct?
