I'm just trying to setup a mailserver and the PC i want to host it has had both a wireless network and an Ethernet cable network card in, so in the ISP router's setup screen I'm getting two entries for the same PC (although I'm only using one at a time).
Does that mean I have to switch the port forwarding if I switch network cards?

You would have to point at whatever gets to the server... presumably you have a fixed IP address on the wired card, and presumably would be using that right?

If you decide to use wireless for whatever reason - I presume this is for a home setup? - then put the same fixed IP on the wireless card and no need to amedn the router.
