     1'''How to Configure Multiple Ethernet Adapters under NT''' [[BR]] 
     2(Lucky Vidmar, January 2002)

     4The presenting problem is that Windows NT appears to automatically decide which adapter to use for all network traffic. This seems to be governed by some sort of load-maximizing algorithm. To make sure that this does not happen to you, it is important to set up your ethernet adapters with care: 
     5 
     6For any adapter connected to the internet: [[BR]] 
     7 - specify IP address [[BR]] 
     8 - specify subnet mask [[BR]] 
     9 - specify the default gateway 
     10 
     11For all other adapters that do not go out to the internet, but are instead [[BR]] 
     12used as "private" networks, [[BR]] 
     13 - specify IP address [[BR]] 
     14 - specify subnet mask [[BR]] 
     15 - LEAVE DEFAULT GATEWAY FIELD BLANK 
     16 
     17Also, make sure that the "IP Forwarding" option is turned off.
