One PC, Two NICS, Two Lans
Posted on 2014-01-02
So I have a computer (W7 x32) that is connected to a local lan for our phone system.
Problem is, I cannot remote into it, because of how the network is set up for that vlan. This is a pain going locally to the machine every time to go to the manager tool.
There is no other NICs available, so I was thinking about plugging in a wireless card, so I can remote into the PC from my laptop on our local wireless network.
However, that NIC on the machine HAS to stay connected to that lan at all times so our phone system does not go down. So I can't just unplug the LAN when I need to use the WLAN. I need them to run together harmoniously.
Can I somehow make it so I can use the LAN and WLAN run at the same time? After Googling for it, I've come across a bunch of keywords such as Multi homing, and other items. But I'm not familiar with any of this persay, but I'm a quick learner.
Let's imagine the NIC is on 192.168.0.1
Let's imagine the WLAN needs to be on 10.0.0.1
How do I get this to work? =]
