  • Outlook 2010 Connection through Wi-Fi-help!

    Hello,
    It may sound odd but, Is there a setup in Outlook 2010 or in the PC itself to connect Outlook through the Wi-Fi and not the LAN connection?


    I am using an external subnet on my LAN for better internet whereas my Wi-Fi is within the domain network with shared slow internet (if I activate the LAN subnet, outlook will get disconnected coz it will try to go through the LAN public subnet that has priority 1. If I change N/W priority for Wi Fi (1) and LAN (2) then my browsing will go through the slow internet that exists on the Wi-fi,


    I wish if there's a tweak to 'just' force Outlook connection thru WiFi ?

    Not as far as I know -- if it has multiple internet connections it will use either

    Assuming you are using RPC/HTTPS (Outlook Anywhere) you could specify connect over HTTPS in preference to TCP/IP and it MIGHT prefer one connection -- depends on your exchange setup

      Could you setup a route statement that pointed the IP of your Exchange via the wireless gateway maybe?

        We've got Outlook Anywhere and I know that can help, but I wish it to be online locally within the Domain...Sigh!!

          Outlook Anywhere will (with the correct split DNS setup) work quite happily within and outside a LAN

          I do like Andy's routing suggestion though

            Hi,

            I added a static windows route but it did not help. I did it on the exchange as well as my notebook itself to introduce each other the subnets...it did not connect. May be I did it not correctly?

            Considering The Exchange itself, my domain Wi-Fi APs and my LAN cable from my notebook (which has the external subnet going to an ADSL modem) attached to a same Cisco Switch, what routing can I try? There's physical link each other between them as it seems.

              That sounds promising, what's the Split DNS setup and how it helps our Outlook Anywhere to work within the LAN?
