    I have 2 internet connections, I use one for my LAN, gaming, browsing the net and everything i need to do except for downloading large files. The second connection i use for downloading large files(game updates go from 200MB to 1GB), torrents (legal), itunes tv shows and generally leave in downloading through the night.

    Is there anyway to use connection 1 on my OS X and connection 2 on vista via VMWare?

    Thanks in advance.

    Are both the routers sat on the same network? If so it should work if you change the VM to 'Bridged' networking (Connect directly to the physical network). Then change the default route in Vista to point to your second router.

    They are both on different routers, one is wired the other wireless.
