Primary IP Address Incorrect

Recommended Posts

I have VmWare Workstation installed on my PC, although I rarely use it.  However, I have noticed that AIDA64 displays the Primary IP Address as one of the two VmWare virtual NIC addresses rather than the physical ethernet NIC address of the PC's wired connection.

There does not appear to be any way in AIDA64 to select the correct NIC for the Primary IP Address.

The primary IP address is provided by Winsock, and may or may not be the primary network adapter.  In rare cases Windows treats one of the least used network adapters as primary.  We haven't found a way to fix it from our end.

Yea, only when I disable both virtual NICs does AIDA64 show the correct Primary IP.  Oh well, NP, as long as you are already aware of it...
