    1 PC 2 NICS. 1 for wan 1 for lan

    Hey ppl,

    I have my main rig which has 2 nics in it.

    One of the nics is connected to the ROuter downstairs.

    THe other nic I have a crossover cable plugged in so I can connect my laptop and copy files accross to it quickly.

    THe problem I Have is that when I turn on the second nic and connect up my Laptop my main rig loses net connection.

    I`ve tried putting both on separate subnets and using separate ip ranges for each card but the problem continues.

    Has anyone got any ideas of how I could set this up. MY main rig uses win xp PRO and my laptop is using windows vista Ultimate.

    Thanks in advance
