    Select interface for Lan Speed test

    Hi,

    I'm using lan speed test 3.5. I noticed that the interface on my machine it uses is the vmware workstation virtual adapter instead of the main LAN connection. Is there a way to choose which interface the test uses?

    Thanks

    Chris

    Angry I wish it just let you pick it from the UI.....

    I also have VMWare workstation and face the same problem. You are supposed to be able to set a Metric as described in this guide: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/299540

    I have found that LST completely ignores that setting on Windows 8 and that leaves 1 thing - disable the other NICs and run your test.

    I must have wasted a day or two trying to improve my 'poor' network speed before I realized it was on a virtual adapter.

    Hi guys,

    I found a way to manually choose the interface with the new compiler that I'm using for the next update. This will be supported in the next update.

    Thanks,
