How to change binding order to add multiple IP addresses on Windows Server 2003
  

We are running Windows Server 2003 server for our office. I have single network card but I want to add multiple IP addresses on this card so that whenever our first source of internet fails, we can switch to another without the need to make changes in the configuration. Any one can just change the wire to up the line. But I don't know how to do so? Can you provide me various possible solutions to set multiple IP addresses on Windows Server 2003? May be I think we can do so by changing binding order!

You need to change your binding order in Windows Server 2003. Make sure that the interface with the IP Address that is most active is at the top of the binding order.

1. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
2. Double-click Network and Dial-up Connections.
3. On the Advanced menu, click Advanced Settings.
4. In the Connections box, select the adapter you want to change the binding order on. After you select the adapter, the Bindings for Local Area Connection box displays the current binding order.
5. Use the arrows on the right-side of the box to move the protocol you choose to the top of the list, and then click OK.
6. If you are prompted to restart the computer, click Yes.
