Hi guys. I want to use the second NIC in my Win 7 Pro HTPC to connect my Samsung telly to internet via my home LAN, so that I can use internet TV features of the telly. The PCs first interface is connected to a wallplate --> internal cabling --> upstairs gigbit switch ---> ADSL2 modem/router ---> internet. I do not want to buy another switch or run more cabling back to my existing switch upstairs, as the internet TV feature is not that important to me to bother spending money. But if I can get it working with a simple patch cable between the telly and the HTPC then peachy! The telly only offers the 4 basic manual TCP/IP settings: IP, Mask, Gateway, DNS. Or full auto/DHCP assigned. Is this going to be possible and if so what is the best way to do it? Will a non-server flavor of windows route traffic between two interfaces like this? I messed around with it for about an hour but could not get it to work. With my limited networking experience and my wifes need to watch Masterchef all the time I gave up for now. I got the telly and PC connected no probs on a different subnet, and added a static route on my DSL router for this network via the PC's primary interface. Print route on the HTPC seemed to show windows should know where to send everything but it just didn't seem to work. The Telly could connect to gateway ok (PCs second NIC), but traffic did not seem to route between the two networks as far as I could tell from trace and ping tests. I'll mess with it some more when I can get access to the telly again (damn masterchef crap that my wife wants to watch all the time) but maybe it's not going to be possible? Anyone done this before? Any advice? Thanks for any help provided.
