Windows 7: How to set up a dual Ethernet card internet sharing with HT receiver

How to set up a dual Ethernet card internet sharing with HT receiver

When building my Hifi mancave, I was smart enough to wire it for Cat6, etc, but not smart enough to put a few lines of cat 6 into my HTPC jack. So I only have 1 cat6 line into my computer area. My new receiver (Onkyo TX-NR809) has a ethernet port in it, which enables internet radio, media sharing, playing, firmware updating, etc. Being a techy guy I got another netcard and put it in my computer and I want to share internet to the receiver via LAN2.

I've been scouring the internet trying to figure out how to do this with Windows 7x64 to whatever system (probably linux based?). I've seen how to do it with Win7&XP, XP&XP, Win7&7 linux & Windows, and they all use some sort of "brige internet connection" or something like that, which doesn't apply to my situation. Will someone just tell me what IP stuffs to use for the following:

Lan1 (Comes from router & modem) It's set for DHCP now, but I can do manual:
IP: 192.168.0.100
Subnet: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.0.2
DNS1:
DNS2:

Lan2 (Crossover/patch cable to Receiver)

IP:
Subnet:
Gateway:
DNS1:
DNS2:

Reciever:



DHCP Yes/No
IP:
Subnet:
Gateway:
DNS:

here is my setup:


Internet sharing is setup for LAN2:

Is there any reason why you don't just use a cheap 5 port switch, put all devices on the same subnet (done automatically with DHCP), and share that way?

I don't want to buy another switch and stick it back there, enough cables and power back there as it is. Using a spare netcard is the cheapest solution.

AND if I do that, I loose gigabit Ethernet, which I love and utilize fully, there are no cheap gigabit Ethernet switches.

Cheapest, maybe - easiest, certainly not. I totally understand your perspective, as I have two rooms completely media connected and crammed full of stuff, but in my experience I found it's always better to put a small switch on a single LAN connection, so all of my equipment can have network connectivity.

Bridging is still what you need to do. Follow any ICS guide, and set your receiver's IP settings to DHCP. You will bridge your computer's internet connection, which will allow the receiver to access the internet via your computer.

How about you link me to "any ICS Guide" that'll work for my situation, and I'll go try that.

Alright, figured it out. I'll leave this here for the ages:

NIC 1: STATIC

IP: 192.168.0.100
Subnet: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.0.1 (router's IP)

DNS: ISP's

Sharing Enabled

NIC 2: Static:

IP: 192.168.0.101
Subnet: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.0.100 (NIC 1's IP)

DNS: ISP's

Receiver: Static

IP: 192.168.0.103
Subnet: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.0.101 (NIC 2's IP)

DNS: ISP's
