Using NetRouteView

NetRouteView doesn't require any installation process or additional dll files. In order to start using it, simply copy the executable file (NetRouteView.exe) to any folder you like, and run it.
The main window of NetRouteView displays the list of all your network routes, like the 'print' command in the route utility of Windows. You can select a single route and then delete it (Del key) or modify it (Ctrl+M). Be aware that only routes with 'Static Route' value in the Protocol column, can be deleted or modified. You can also add a new route by using 'New Route' option (Ctrl+N).

Notice: If you are using NetRouteView on Windows 7/Vista/2008 with UAC turned on, you must right-click on NetRouteView.exe and choose 'Run As Administrator' in order to be able to add, remove, or delete network routes.

Using The 'Switch Metric Values' Option

If you have more than one network adapters with Internet connection, the 'Metric' value is used to determine which Internet connection will be used by default. (The operating system always use the route with lower Metric value)
If you want to switch to the other network adapter, simply select both network routes of these adapters, and then use the 'Switch Metric Values' option. After the metric switching, the internet connection of the other network adapter will be used.
