    "Warning - Multiple default gateways are intended to provide
    redundancy to a single network (such as an intranet or the Internet)."


    I have no idea if this is a fault or normal for my setup (32bit Vista
    Ultimate/Q6600/nVidia 680i w/ dual NVIDIA nForce 10/100/1000 Mbps
    Ethernet). This warning pops up whenever I set a static IP for either
    of the two.
    I have no problem accessing the Internet and I have teaming turned
    on.
    Under the "Network Connections" panel I have the following:

    NIC #1 - Access to Local only
    NIC #2 - Access to Local and Internet

    I want to understand if this i a fault to fix or is it not important.

  2. You may setup two gateways in the system, which is not recommended. Posting
    back with the result of ipconfig /all may help.

  4. Why do you setup two NICs? If you have muiltple gateways, they may cause
    some issues. These search results may help too.
