    even though it appears you're having the same problem, please start a new thread. It's very difficult to keep two problems straight and who's working on what in a single thread. Thanks for your cooperation.

    I've moved this to networking. Please tell us exactly what you're trying to accomplish. If you want Internet connectivity on both, tell us about your Internet connection, make/model of the modem and any router you use. Version/patch level of Windows in use.

    Also tell us about your network set up. Do you have cable modem, dsl?
    Are you going through router or direct connection? If you have a router you shouldn't have much trouble obtaining an IP for both network cards. Router will give out 192.168.x.x ip to your cards and it will NAT (translate) it to public ip that you get from your ISP. If you are directly conencted to cable modem (through hub or switch) you will have to ask you ISP if you are provisioned for more then one IP.
