2 Network cards

Hey guys,

I got a tower and its running 7ultamat 32bit, and I have a wireless and wired network card, they are useing the same network G and 100mb/lan

I have some file servers on the lan part that are on the same hub, Is there a way I could bridge both connections so when I upload data it goes in both network cards and to the destination?

I'm not sure if this would allow simultaneous transfers but it would definitely allow access to the desired locations.

Take a look at Network Bridge - Create or Delete .

If I've missed something feel free to point it out to me.

PS I see you are a Mac user. If you are still running 10.6.2 for any reason including Steam graphics driver issues, these issues have been sorted out and it is safe to update to 10.6.4. This also patches several security holes which makes it even more crucial you update now. If you are running 10.6.4 just carry on.

I never changed that as of yet my mac died, I'm on a real pc,

but the other part of my network is hooked in to the router as well so its like this
My main computer I use is near a 5 port hub that is hooked in to the router wireless, and the computer is hooked to the router via wireless,

Know I have computer systems on the hub that host files on my main computer (documents .ect) I rahter the other computers grab the data via the network cord then the wireless part
Also what is steam?

I think by default if possible, Windows takes the most direct (not necessarily quickest) way to a network location, I don't know how to change that.

Steam is an Application that manages games on Mac and PC but strongly advised Mac users not to upgrade to 10.6.3 due to driver issues.

A solution that just sprang to mind is to turn the wireless cards off all together if they are just adding unneeded redundancy to your system.

Hi everyone :) I've got a problem. I can't get two network cards to corporate. I have attached a schedule of how I want it to be. The switch gives external and not internal IP's. Is that a problem in this case? I know that this is possible in WinXP but I use W7 on the server.
