Dual Gigabit on mobo + second PC

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I was wondering if there was a way that I could setup my main gaming PC that has 2 Ethernet ports as kinda like a switch so 1 port could put both my main PC and my server PC on the same network since all the ports on the router are taken.

you could prolly bridge the two connections if you did buy the two NICs but then your server staying on the network would rely on your gaming PC to be kept on all the time to maintain the connection.
A small hub or switch would prolly be a better solution.

as long as your main PC is always on, the server will always be on the network and you can bridge the connections. However, I would advise you just to buy a small (5 port) gigabit switch and add more ports.
