I have 2 PCs at home. Lets name one of them as PC 1 which has two onboard LAN Ports. Now, PC1 has to connect to PC 2, just a home network for easy transfer on files and stuff, and it also has to connect to the internet via a network. The problem is both of them use static ip and when I tried configuring PC 1, it allows only one of the connections to remain active. I simply get an error otherwise saying "Multiple Gateways" will cause conflict and I will be stuck with only one connection.
After much study I "somehow" connected both. I vaguely remember using the "route" command in cmd to achieve this. But now, I am getting an error when I try to access PC 2. My Internet is working fine.
I am not network savvy at all. Please help me run both these connections from PC 1. I should add that I can in no way modify/change/or do anything else to my internet network since it is out of my control. I can do anything, however, for my Home Lan with PC 2. I run windows 7. Both the connections are wired, by the way.
