    I have 2 network cards in my computer, one of which goes into my cable modem and the other into my Xbox.

    If both of my network cards are enabled I cannot access the internet from my PC, but my Xbox can tap into my PC. As soon as I disable the NIC designated for my Xbox, the net becomes accessible on my PC again. Apparently, Windows is trying to route internet traffic through the wrong net adapter, so I can only use one or the other. How can I keep both NICs enabled and have access to both of them simultaneously correctly?

    I'd also like my Xbox to be able to access the internet with this setup. I've tried with Internet Connection Sharing on and off but have had no luck getting my Xbox on the net.

    Any ideas appreciated, thanks.
