Specs: Windows XP
I have looked extensively and never found a
solution. I have 2 NICs: NIC1 for internet and
NIC2 for LAN (no internet.) NIC1 is wireless
USB adapter and NIC2 is built into the MoBo
(not wireless.) Whenever both NICs are on
and I try to access the internet it doesn't work
(seems to only try and find the internet on
NIC2.) However, when I disable NIC2 then
internet works great. Once internet is running
on NIC1 and I try to enable NIC2, then it
screws up again and internet doesn't work.
Using Windows XP Pro SP3 and loosing my
hair & totally frustrated about this. Can anyone

NIC1 (wireless/internet)

NIC2 (wired LAN / no internet)

No ICS or Bridging used. NIC2 settings must remain so
because of specialized apps that require those ip settings.

NIC1 is basically assigned these settings by the wireless
Any ideas?
