'large (amount of) pcs"

then you should not be routing internet thru the server. Normally you use the router going to the internet.

What specifically are you trying to accomplish?

Just because you have two nics doesn't mean you have to use them. :-)

You would install the RRAS role.

Do understand you will now be routing all internet traffic through the server which will consume server resources. You should have a router between the server and the internet.
