If you have Windows XP you can select both connections
and click "Bridge" - this will merge them into one
interface exactly as you want.
I have the same thing but on a FreeBSD server;
NIC A ---> router ---> internet
NIC B ---> gigabit switch ---> multiple platforms
NIC C (54mbit wireless) --> laptops
By bridging A and B, you effectively create yourself
a software ethernet switch which the machine treats
as a single IP address. As long as you configure
each machine on the network properly (ip, subnet,
gateway etc.) it will all Just Work (tm).
Any firewall configured for the bridge interface
will act on packets from all original interfaces
(this is great as it allows you to have multiple
physical lans controlled by one firewall)
With Windows 2000 and below you may have a little trouble
because it's not built in; last time I checked there
was a little tool called EtherBridge (website at -
which worked, but that site's been down for a
while for me. I have a copy of the last version I used
if you want to try it.
