I am trying to enable 2 network cards on the same computer ( they are not identical), but seems like i can only use 1 network card at a time.....this is what i am trying to do. Router -> main computer -> computer2 I have 2 network cards on main computer, one from router in, the other is for computer2. Cant get the one from main computer -> computer2 "ON". I guess it will be easier if i just get a really long cable connect from router straight to computer2 but...no Any advice or comments will be nice.
