I just got this board and I have two questions regarding the dual-LAN.
(1) I don't really need both of them since I connect to a home
router/firewall. If I'm staring at the back panel, which one of the LAN
port is the embedded Ethernet controller with the onboard RTL8201BL PHY and
which on is the integrated Ethernet controller with the RTL810L chip. The
left or right.
(2) Also is there any difference in performance if I only wanted to use
one? Does one take more CPU cycles or give better throughput?
