QuickTip: Set Network Priority in Windows 10
Here’s a little quick tip on how to make one network interface a higher priority than the other ones!
This is useful if you (like me) have multiple connections on different VLANs at work or at home which both are isolated from each other. In my case I’m using it to test stuff in a virtual machine on the user network while my main workstation remains in the admin network, tho Windows 10 automatically decides to set my main laptop to the user network for whatever reason.

- Uncheck “Automatic Metric” and enter 10 in “Interface Metric“
- Click OK
- Repeat for the second connection but this time use 20
