Specs: DOS
Using a similar product... but no problems with that.

Right then...

I have a problem whereby DOS is not allowing me to use the alternate NIC in the laptop.

After having used the "IPconfig\all" command and comparing the info against whats shown on my DHCP server, I have the indication that DOS is binding to the wrong card (checked against MAC addresses).

How can I configure DOS to enable/use the card I require?

Are you using DOS or a Windows command Prompt as ipconfig /all does no exist in DOS. Ipconfig is a windows command run from a command prompt. A command prompt is not DOS.

When you run ipconfig /all from a command prompt it will show you the configuration set by windows as that is the Operating system you are running, not DOS. (DOS = Disk Operating system).

If you want to bind to a particular NIC you do the configuration in Windows. You can configure the Network Setting from a command Prompt but it is a lot easier using the windows dialogues. The end result is the same.
