    I want to connect my XP machine to T1 lan and on the other side,


    Is it possible to communicate with other hardware using wireless lan card, with out disturbing regular lan settings?

    You want to bridge from the T1 network to the wireless LAN? That should be possible, the two LAN segments have their own settings.

    let me rephrase my self.

    I want to use wireless lan and wired lan (at different static IP), at the same time on the same machine.

    How do I make a separate connection on XP?

    If the wired and wireless connections are connected to two separate LAN segments, XP will figure out which segment it has to send responses out on. Broadcasts will go out on both, but I'd assume that only the broadcast's intended recipient will respond, and then a normal TCP conversation will take place.

    I think you'll have to be a lot more specific about exactly what's connected here to give a better answer.
