Hi there..

im a new to this.. so any help would be helpfull .. :) :)

Well I have to diffrent networks with 2 diffrent IPs for each network

Each of them has its own hub.. what I want to do is to be able to access each network via its hub to one machine... so i think i can have one machine with 2 network cards accessing 2 diffrent networks from one machine.. is that possible...

Can anyone give me a IP range to use for one of the networks
and another for the other network just to make sure they dont conflict...

im newer than a newbie to this... so please excuse the stupidity....

Cheers

you can put each of them on different subnets to make sure they do not interfere with eachother but i dont think you need to.

i would also strongly suggest not using a hub and using routers... this would also save you some time with the ip and subnets because the router should have dhcp enabled so it will provide the ip and subnet for you.

also make sure that you have both nicks enabled. that way you can access both at the same time. otherwise you could disable one and use the other then switch them. again that is just precautionary to make sure there is no interference.

again i dent think that will be necessary, i think you can use both nicks with no problem what so ever.

if this doesn't work say so and i will give more suggestions.

Word of warning: Windows XP doesn't play well with multiple ethernet cards. It will literally confuse itself and you may have interuptions accessing stuff from each network. It also play's favorites and you might not even be able to access one of the networks. Sometimes I've seen it cut off ALL access to anything outside until one of the adapters is disabled.

I've even hard problems with Server 2003 with multiple nics. In a user setting. For a server, it has no problem.

I have 2 2003 Servers with dual nics but I only use one of them because I have no reason to use the other nic. Once I do though I will give it a shot.

i know when i'm troubleshooting with customers when they have a wireless card and they're running a nic and both of them are active things suck. generally they're running two wireless devices when they're doing that. that's for a wireless community though http://www.gomoorhead.com
