right now its set up with the modem going in to my pc on nic 2 and the network in nic 1. i just wanted a way to put it in the basement but yea the servers don't have a second nic in them. i may be able to add one tho.
and the main reason is that i now have the gigabit switch. and i don't want to buy a gigabit router LOL my original modem that had the ability to do dhcp and a dns table. it died so this is a temp solution.
