How do I connect a computer to a network and the internet?
I have a mobile broadband device (the MiFi 2200) and since my computer doesn't have internal wireless, 3 wireless adapters (Linksys AE1000). When it's connected to my network (3 computers, wired), the internet doesn't work at all. But once I disconnect it, it works fine. So far people have been telling me that it can't be done because my OS isn't designed to connect to 2 different networks at the same time. Not sure if I'm maybe missing a piece of hardware or I need to tweak with the settings a little bit. But it defeats the purpose when I got the internet service so I could better do my work, but I can't do my work without connecting to my network. My computer is a Dell Dimension DIM2400 and it's running on Windows XP SP3.

Simple. Don't put a gateway entry for the internal lan. You only list a gateway for the internet connection.
