....why are you wanting to have the internet DIRECTLY to your p c instead of sharing it through the router?

Mostly so i can run a ftp server when i need to, being behind a router makes this difficult if not impossible...

well...not really...if you use port forwarding on the router you'll be able to still do your ftp stuff all you like...BUT..in the interest of making this work the way you want to...

you need to set up internet connection sharing on the "server" computer (the one with the two nics that's hooked up to the internet) so that the other computers can use it's internet connection
