  • Problems after switch from 1 NIC to 2

    Tonight I made the attempt to switch from a one NIC setup to a 2 NIC setup. It seems to be working OK. I have access to the internet and all devices from my PC, but there are a few problems.

    1) I keep spontaneously being disconnected and then reconnected from the server.
    2) The internet is slow
    3) I no longer have remote access to my system

    Does anyone have any ideas what could be wrong. Please ask if more information is needed. Thanks in advance. Below you'll find a copy of a ipconfig /all from the server.

    To start, you have both NICs on the same subnet. What is the purpose behind the 2 NIC configuration?
    1 1 was a racehorse.
    2 2 was 1 2.
    1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
    2 2 1 1 2

      Well, I just changed it back to 1 nic. I thought I would be able to monitor web activity, but then I realized that you can't with the standard edition. That's not good so I guess eventually here I need to upgrade.

        You could monitor web traffic if that is your goal, but for 2 NICs, as Biggles77 says, you will need two subnets: one for your SBS and LAN; and a different one for your SBS to Router/firewall/gateway net.
        TIA

          Teiger, monitoring web traffic is my goal. I need to see which people are visiting which sites and when. Everything I've read is telling me that I need the premium edition of sbs 2003 so I nixed it yesterday and went back to one NIC. If there is a way for me to monitor web traffic, I'd gather it'd require a two NIC setup, correct? Enlighten me on how I would monitor web traffic...I'm very interested now and willing to give it another shot, hopefully correctly this time.

          edit: Also, how should I determine what ip address to use for the second nic if they can't be on the same subnet?
