NIC cards

by Alpha-Male In reply to NIC cards

If you mean two different networks (as in home and office), there are much better solutions. Try Netswitcher (www.netswitcher.com) or set up hardware profiles on your laptop (exactly how depends upon your OS).

Hope this helps. If you are trying to do something different than I'm anticipating, please offer some details and I'll try to help further.

If you really mean two different networks you can assign two IPs to the same NIC via advanced TCP/IP properties for the NIC.

Hope that helps -

addendum: this of course assumes windows. There are OS-specific methods for Linux, Unix, etc. to have multi-homed ports.
