    Default 2 network ports on MB?

    So what are the most useful solutions to use both network ports on the MB? From what im reading it basicly just allows for internet connection share with out going through a router. Is this correct?

    With two connections you can create a physical router or firewall, or team them together for either high availability (so if one fails, the other one kicks in) or combined throughput. With VMWare, you can also bind virtual guests to specific network ports too. Just depends on what you fancy doing with them. I learned firewalling and routing that way, creating a dedicated box for VPNs too.

    I noticed your running Win7. Win 7 will auto line load level if you use both. Wont neccisarly speed up your internet. But, might make a few things run smoother(gaming, streaming). Im not a expert on it. But thats the jist I have gotten from it reading a few wiki's.
