What OS is your computer with two nics running? In Windows I don't believe you can take advantage of it. I have seen Linux setups that can. If you are running a *nix I will run down the links.

go to my network place's properties and there you see the local area connection and right click and go to status then click support there you see assigned by DHCP or ststic .

Just disconnect one the nics, if the connection to the internet fails you know what nic was connected to the internet.
But why use two nics for the internet? How much Mbps is your connection to the internet?

linux 9.0 can pass the links..

Its very simple,
Run a command in command prompt called
ipconfig /all
It will give complete details.

basically you need two lan cards where u r using the proxy server. one for external network and one for internal network.. I also use this setup with linux with external network with static IP and on internal NIC card I am running the DHCP..

and to check which card is using which configuration

use the ipconfig/all
