How To: Change NIC binding order in Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012

imageAn unexpected slowdown issue had me baffled a not too long ago with timeouts to online services, web surfing, network access – generally everything had delays in starting / connecting. For the life of me, I couldn’t figure out why.

Then it struck me. I was using Windows 8 Hyper-V feature for some screencasts here on the blog as well as impromptu demos and I had created various INTERNAL and PRIVATE networks in order to isolate my VMGuests from the production network. By doing the newer INTERNAL networks – I had created new network adapters on my corporate client machine which screwed up my binding order!

A quick swipe to the start screen and typing of “binding” didn’t turn up anything in the search.  I then remembered the GUI way of surfacing the binding order configuration tool.


The Steps?

  • Just open your Network and Sharing Center.
  • Press an ALTkey on your keyboard to show the menu bar.
  • Click on the Advancedmenu
  • choose Advanced Settingsoption
  • Adjust your binding order for your NICs to ensure your primary CORP ones are at the TOP

Silly me!
