How To Disable Tcp/Ip Routing Automatic Process Of Metric Calculation Feature

TCP/IP is a packet which is used in identifying networks, with which we can forward the data and transmit it to destination address. It is used for connecting to the internet. The process is called as a routing which includes selecting ways/paths in network along nodes like routers, firewalls, gateways, hubs, switches which distributes network traffic. Now you must know some technical configuration of routing.

During the routing process, the path selection is based on routing metric. If your computer has multiple network cards, means there is various routes available to destination. Then paths selection chooses the best route metric which computed by routing algorithm.

Routing algorithm takes information such as network delay, bandwidth, path cost, hop count, load, communication cost, and reliability to select optimized route for your network connection.

Metric calculation is an automatic process which runs for each connection available or network interface. If metric calculation is not providing best results, then the user can disable automatic option of metric calculation and set metric value manually.

Steps to set metric calculation manually:

  • Just press start>control panel, and then select network connection options. In vista you just go to network and sharing center, and then choose manage network connection.
  •  Now right click on local area connection and select properties. If there is any other connectivity option available like wireless network, so you can select it for later process.
  • Here you will get list to choose internet protocol. There are two versions available of internet protocol such as IP6 or IP4. You can choose whichever is flashing on your screen.
  • In internet protocol properties dialog box,  you just click on advanced button
  • There are many options you will get under advanced option. You have to choose IP setting option.
  • Now uncheck automatic settings option.
  • In interface text box you just type 1 and 9999 metric value
  • click ok to save changes and close all tabs

Use Remote Access Console Or From The DOS Prompt To Add New Route

Adding New Route To TCP/IP Routing Table By Using Remote Access Console Or From The DOS Prompt

Every windows box that is connected to a network, either it is wide area network or local area network has an IP routing table. This table contains rules that define where and how all data packets must be sent.

Generally, it is very normal process to connect your computer with the internet. However, some time the computers that are connected to complex network will require advanced network topology, and they’ll also need additional requirements of routing the paths.

In simple word Sometimes network interface routers requires more relevant information and optimization paths to connect computer to the remote servers of Internet service provider. In such circumstances, you can resolve this problem by adding manual routes in routing tables through command prompt.

How to add IP route rules in to routing tables in DOS command prompt with route command prompt-

1. Click start and open command prompt.

2. Below is the syntax of route command to add routing table:

route ADD [destination IP address or subnet] MASK [subnet mask] [gateway IP address] [metric] IF [interface] 

Every part of this syntax is not mandatory. There are also some optional parts in this syntax such as network interface and metric.

For example, the command to add route to subnet network through gateway router: route ADD MASK

To make route persistent across boots of the system, use -p flag in addition to route add command. Else, route will not be preserved once the system reboots.

For example: route –p ADD MASK

3. Press enter to start the rote command

4. Now check that your route settings are added correctly by viewing routing table

If you face any difficulties, then you must scan the route commands again. If any information is incorrectly entered, then you have to delete that route and enter the new rout commands all over again.

5. Add new rout table using routing and remote access console:

  • Go to start > Administrative tools>Routing and remote access?

  • If your computer is already configured, then you can skip to step 5 directly. However, if your computer is not configured, then you have to configure it. Right click on action menu and select configure routing and remote access.

  •  During this process you select custom configuration option to enable routing access


Following these steps you can easily configure optimized network connection. These two methods are useful to get connected with your computer.
