ignored that and sent my traffic for the test network to the router.
This is brain-dead, if I specify that needs to go to then it should not let some device arbitrarily tell my system
that it has a better route to that network unless that is something I
/want/ it it do.

So you configured a valid default route on Windows, and it used a different route instead? Or you configured an invalid default route and it didn't use it? I'm a bit puzzled by this paragraph, because my experience is that Windows isn't quite as brain-dead as you're suggesting here.
