Apr 10, 2016 · In the context of Windows OS there are two metrics that come into play. One is the metric of the interface/ NIC itself (that’s the “Automatic metric” checkbox above). By default its set to automatic, and this determines the cost of using that interface itself.
On Windows the route metric has to be always greater than or equal to the interface metric so the number specified in this call is the metric offset: the metric you see in 'route print' will be this number + the metric of the underlying interface. For example, if the interface metric is 20, you will get 25 in the above case. netsh interface ip show config. Here is an example of command output: Configuration for interface "Local Area Connection 1" DHCP enabled: Yes InterfaceMetric: 1 DNS servers configured through DHCP WINS servers configured through DHCP Configuration for interface "Local Area Connection 2" DHCP enabled: No IP Address: 192.168.0.20 SubnetMask: 255.255.255.0 InterfaceMetric: 1 Statically Configured Dec 26, 2008 · In Windows, metric calculation is automatically been done for each network interface or connection available. In the automatic metric calculation does not result in best network performance and routing cost, user can disable the automatic metric calculation feature and manually set a metric value. Oct 11, 2011 · Windows will pick whichever connection costs it the least. this is defined by the metric. So all you have to do is change the metric of the desired interface to something that is lower than the metric of the undesired connection and you are good to go.
Configuring Metrics, or how to choose the default connection between Wired and Wireless Connections. It is very common in today computers (especially Laptops) to have Wired Network Card (NIC) as well as Wireless.
The routes with the lowest metric will take precedence over higher metrics. By default, static routes have a metric of 6. You can also optionally add a IF 2 to the end. This will force the route to use interface 2. You can see what interface numbers you have with the route print command.
To remove an existing route, use the netsh interface ipv4 delete route or netsh interface ipv6 delete route command. If you suspect a problem with router performance, use the pathping -d IPAddress command to trace the path to a destination and display information on packet losses for each router in the path.
Jan 05, 2010 · The interface metric (IPConnectionMetric) for a network connection indicates the cost of using the routes in the IP routing table. The routes are derived from the interface configuration. The cost becomes the value in the Metric column for those routes in the IP routing table. Mar 26, 2013 · That is because the gateway metric for that card was added to the interface metric that I've set. You can see the gateway metric number on the interface when you do a "netsh interface ip show config". The probleme is that the gateway metric changes all the time for some reason.
