Setup two nics to work as one on windows xp Tags: NICs Realtek Windows XP Networking Last response: February 13, 2010 1:11 PM in Networking Share comnetgeek February 13, 2010 10:42:25 AM Hi, I have a desktop with two Realtek RTL8139 nics and one onboard intel pro 100 ve. I use a scientific atlanta cable modem. I was wondering if I can use both realtek nics on the single cable connection. I would appreciate detailed answers as I am a newbie.

I was thinking about splitting the modem port into two using a swith or hub and connecting the two nics to it. Or Is there any software which could team these two nics ? My idea is to make my os look as two different connection on a single pc.
