Windows DHCP is the best.  you have to create a scope.  it's best to use one that is specifically designed for internal network use like 192.168.1.1 - 192.168.1.255  The subnet mask should be 255.255.255.0, the gateway, DNS server and WINS server should be 192.168.1.1.  Also make sure that you configure the scope to listen on 192.168.1.1, and ONLY 192.168.1.1

assign the Windows network card on the value of 192.168.1.1

As far as the internet, you might be able to set the external network card to 'Obtain IP address automatically', and perhaps the router will assign your computer with the proper internet configuration information.  Your ISP should have explained this to you.  If not you will need to get the IP configuration information from your ISP.

the 192.168.1.1 should be static.  The other is probably issued by DHCP, but you'll have to ask your ISP.

how do you know it's a virus?  is it possibly just an advertisement pop-up?  windows reccomends that you disable the Messenger Service if you connect a computer to the internet.  

Start -> Run -> Services.msc
Disable "Messenger"

Goto Control Panel -> Network Connections

You should be able to see both NICs there.  Right click each one and goto properties.  Then click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and click properties...

you should see where to configure static IP addresses.

please youre not answering my question what i'm asking is if i put the ip on the tcp ip 192.168.1.1  and then i go to dhcp and configure it there with that ip and then i just put the gateway what my isp gives me or i put the ip 201.225.85.x? for 1 nic card then the other nic card
i put the internal ip like example 10.0.0.2 whatver now a question is the best way to keep the server secured is to have 2 nic card what is the most secure way to keep the server from not getting viruses? how can i configure the both one for internet the other for the network i mean like a public ip and a private ip ? can you give me an a good example how i can do this to configure both nic cards?

the ip configuration that i got from the isp is the following

ip adress.201.225.85.x
subnet mask 255.255.255.248
default gateway.201.225.85.x
prefered dns server 201.225.225.225
alternate dns server 201.224.73.162

do i have to have the same ip for windows dhcp or it has to be 192.168.1.1?
