Using my motherboard as a switch/gateway?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to cut my network down to only using one router, but to do this without spending any money I wanted to try and route internet through my computer.

My motherboard has 2 ethernet ports so I was curious if I could just plug the internet straight from the one router in, and then have a cable going from my computer to another computer out. The other computer seems to detect a connection, but cannot seem to actually browse the internet or anything.

Any ideas?

Ah, nevermind. I managed to bridge them together.
