Sorry I forgot the mention.
Vista has these settings too, it is just a different steps to get to the
Network Connection's Properties.
Open the Network and Sharing window by right clicking on the Network icon in
the system tray.
At the upper left side click on "Manage network Connection, http://www.ezlan.net/vista/vs-net-center.jpg
Right click on one connection choose Properties, highlight the TCP/IPv4
properties and follow as per the metrics page instruct.
Do the same with the second Connection.
