Two LANs on one PC.......How?

I have two LAN connections from two different service providers, and obviously with different conncetivity settings. The PC is currently having one ethernet connector. How can I configure my PC to run both LANs at the same time but with different settings?

can I ask...why?

In reply to: Two LANs on one PC.......How?

it sounds like you have 2 ISP's, in which case you need to just take the faster of the two

if you have a in-house/in-office LAN + your internet and want to connect to the web + have the LAN

you need to get a router, and feed it into the switch or hub that your using for the office so it can provide the internet to everybody/thing

configuration of 2 LAN's on a single PC is possible
if you have 2 NIC's

We do have an in-house LAN sort of a thing but recently our boss decided to get another ISP running in case te first one bogs down. I did installed another NIC in addition to the Built-In Ethernet connector. But how will I configure IE6 with two opposite settings?
