^ there's a way to do it, i'm just not sure how. the way i was gonna do it was to hook one into the router and the other directly to the modem, and use both nets at the same time to access the internet. i never got around to it, and the mobo i have now only has one port

I've wondered the same thing myself. Perhaps so you can have an internet connection separate from the network connection. I only use one of mine.

you can use your computer as a server or a router for 2 different networks as well as making one bridge connection between them to double you bandwidth ... but only if you have 2 separate modems because that is where your bandwidth regulation is made (between your isp and modem)

Edit: if you have a dual core you can host games on one link to other computers and use the other link to send out to the internet ex: your team all one your lan connected to your pc then your pc connected alone to your modem ... this will drastically reduce lag and bandwidth issues to the game server

Bingo.

It's if you have 2 PCs and don't have a router and still want the two computers to be able to communicate to each other. It requires a crossover cable.

But the whole technology is basically obsolete in most cases, since routers are now cheap enough to justify buying one instead of bridging two connections. Crossover cables are not as easy to find as regular patch cable.

I guess motherboard companies just put it on there for the fallback factor.
