How to Split ESXi4.1 with 2 LAN ports, so 1 port will go to the LAN and the second to the WAN?

Hi

In the vCenter -> Configuration > Hardware > Networking > Properties
I see only one vSwitch
How can I setup the First vmnic0 to be connected to the vSwitch and to My Local LAN 192.168.0.150
And setup the Second vmnic1 to be connected to external ADSL modem 10.0.0.1

Just create another vSwitch, and assign the 2nd Phys NIC to the 2nd vSwitch and configure as needed.

How do I change the vmnic1 IP range to 10.0.0.0 - 10.0.0.255 ?

There is no IP address on the vmnic1, you connect a Virtual Machine to that switch and network, and give the VM that IP address!

vmnic1 is connected to vSwitch1, the traffic is passed thru the vmnic1 to the vSwitch.
