Hey.

I have a situation that I don't know how to solve and I would like to ask for help from the experts...

I have a pc connected to a LAN network with internet access (via proxy), but without access to some certain sites. As I need to access these sites and I have an USB Pen with internet, I thought of connecting it simultaneously to access these sites.

Still, I cannot access these sites (even after configuring the browser not to use any proxy). I suppose that all internet access is going through the LAN network Gateway/DNS, ignoring the internet connection provided by the USB pen.

Can anyone tell me the best way of forcing certain sites to use the internet connection provided by the USB pen and not via LAN network, so I can access these, being simultaneously connected via LAN and with the USB pen?

Thanks in advance.

Sounds like a company network. If so, you get help from your IT department for something like this.

You're right, but this is a customer's network, not my company's... That's why I requested for help.

Anyway...

Maybe your customer's network administrator blocked those sites for a reason.

Have you asked the administrator?

What's the point of answering if you don't want to help?

You can close/delete the topic...

The point of answering is to determine if this is a company network we have no business messing with. I think you have resolved that issue. Closing.
