Multiple NIC problem

I've got two computers with two NICs each. Each computer has a NIC that accesses the internet via a cheap router/switch, while the other NICs I use for my Cisco lab. Trouble is, I don't seem to be able ping my Cisco gear without disabling the NIC that accesses the internet first. If I do a ping to a Cisco router for example, the little icon in the task tray for the internet NIC will flash, but not the one connected to the Cisco router, resulting in a timeout.

Any ideas on how I can force the ping through the right NIC without having the disable the other one all the time?

Thank in advance.

Ps I'm running XP pro.
