Multiple NICs

At work, we have a Windows XP machine that has two NIC cards installed. One card goes to our own network and the other nic card gets out of the building via a third party router.

When I do a tracert to their address, the IP of the first hop is our router, not theirs. I changed the binding of the NICs but that doesn't seem to help.

How can I make the PC use the other NIC card FIRST when performing network tasks?

Any and all information will be greatly appreciated.
