  1. It's not clear to me exactly what you mean.

    Do you have TWO ethernet outputs on your motherboard and are trying to use BOTH at the same time?

    Perhaps your motherboard is unique, but my last motherboard had two ethernet connectors but they coud be used:
    1) EITHER (not both) for single network, or
    2) BOTH TOGETHER (teaming) for single network (didn't matter since my network bandwidth was already higher than a single ethernet chip could support so I never used it)

    Normally you just use ONE of those ethernet outputs for BOTH your online and LAN needs. The ROUTER (standalone or in Gateway device with Modem) simply forwards your data to the MODEM for Internet (WAN), or to another device for LAN connectivity.

    *My best guess is you're trying to do something not supported such as hooking up the same PC to the network twice by using both Ethernet ports. If not, make it CLEAR what's going on.

    This could be an issue to your local routing table not knowing which interface to go out to the internet. In a command prompt please type the following exactly and post back your results:

    route print

    Also are both networks on separate subnets? If not then this will be another potential cause as both LANs need to be on seperate subnets and your computer will need the respecting IP address for each interface.
