Windows 7: Can 2 IP addresss be used simultaneously on a single laptop ?

Can 2 IP addresss be used simultaneously on a single laptop ?

I have LAN connection and according to my Gateway of, i can use any IP within the range of -

I want to host a VerliHub on my laptop at an IP
For all other purposes like connecting to local CS or DOTA servers, connecting to my Hub which i will be hosting, connecting to Internet, I would like to use another IP say for example

I m not concerned about the IP that i get from the Main router through the ISP while using internet access and neither am i concerned with what the DHCP provides the router. I am just concerned about the usage of 2 different IP addresses from the same laptop over LAN.

If i can host the hub at 1 IP and access it from another IP through my laptop, then kindly let me know how to do it.

Theoretically, you can, but you need to enable both your ethernet and wireless connections at once, and then set one adapter to use one IP address and assign the the other static address to the other connection..

If your application allows you to specify the network adapter to be used for its purposes then all the better...
