NIC Question??? Tags: NICs NIC Netgear Components Last response: March 22, 2004 4:21 AM in Components Share aaaheavy February 9, 2004 11:07:08 PM I want to setup a 2 machine home network. Both machines have win 2000 and I want to share files, printer and Connection using ICS. I have Biostar M7VIP Board (Host machine). The board has onboard LAN Ethernet controller Chip VT6103. I also have Netgear 4 port Hub with Netgear NIC FA310TX card for client machine. Can I use the VT6103 onboard chip (host Machine) along with the Netgear NIC in the client machine?
