One PC, two networks question

Hi all,

I have one XP workstation here. It is not connected to the Active Directory network here in the office. It has it's own modem and router to the outside world.

I would like to add another network card to it, issue an IP address from the network DHCP so it can browse a few network folders. I plan not to issue a DNS address on the second network card so it cannot get on the internet.

The goal: Browse network folders, while using the original network card for internet connection. Folders will be read only from this PC.

Can this be accomplished?

Thanks

Heeter

If it's not assigned a gateway IP then yes. I have done this before with a wifi and wired connection on a laptop.

There may be another way but that how I fixed my issue (at the time my internet was down so I used a "Free wifi" but wanted access to my LAN still).
