I've been trying to set up 2 NICs each, in two workstations for the following reasons:
1. integrated NIC used for DSL connection, FTP, all public internet needs, etc.
2. PCI NIC used for T1, VPN, VoIP (h.323 devices), etc.
Both computer are using Win XP:( , both are identical machines, same make model, specs, etc. Both have the exact same network cards, etc.
The NIC's are configured as follows:
1. Integrated using DHCP for DSL with the DHCP using the Subnet of 192.168.5.x
2. PCI NIC using Static IP using the 192.168.3.x subnet for VPN on T1
The problem and I've seen similar questions posted on other forums and this one as well, but none with the same configuration as my system, or the same needs. But with both NIC's connected, no internet. I've tried the elimination of default gateway's, etc., but when I do that, if I delete the default gateway of my PCI NIC for T1, then I get no VPN anymore. If I try to staticly set the IP for the DSL, then I get no internet. I hope this all makes sense. And let me know if you have any further questions of the configuration. I've exhausted all other solutions. Thanks!
