Java grabs the first network it sees by default. This link gives you a couple methods to change the network binding order
on windows 7. If you wish to make the home network useable, we would need to know which step in the networking FAQ was the first to fail. It is likely that you would need to change some settings on your AT&T device (likely a DSL modem/router/switch combination) to allow UPNP (generally preferred, but broken in the latest builds of Maptool) or port forwarding.
I've tried those methods actually. Neither seem to make a difference. Both methods do not force Maptools to use my external IP from the staticIP NIC.
I have used the port forwarding before but I want to be able to just tell my players the dns name/ip once and not have to update that whenever I get a new IP from the DSL router/device. I.E. somehow force maptools to utilize the static IP NIC.
It's not a huge deal just would be nice. I typically just disable the AT&T connected NIC and reboot. This makes everything work as I need for the session... just would be nice to not have to.
