Hiya

I've been having problems running some LAN games over NeoRouter on some Windows computers, and finally found a solution. It appears that the default IPv4 network metric for the NeoRouter adapter is too high. On one machine where I just fixed the issue, the 255.255.255.255 metrics for the NeoRouter interface were tied with the 255.255.255.255 metrics of the underlying network interface, making the games send UDP broadcast to the wrong interface.

After overriding the metric for the NeoRouter adapter with something really low (I used 5), the problem was fixed.

I'm no network wizard, but maybe you guys should consider lowering the default metric so that the VPN interface takes priority.
