Two network cards, one set to a private subnet, and one public.

Not recommended in a highly secure environment, but to keep your home business data relatively secure, it will work. Of course security isn't even a concern for LAN gaming.

You could also assign two IP addresses to the same computer, but this would require a router capable of configuration to support it, and most cheapos won't cooperate.

I am deployed to Iraq so security is nill, this is my personal comp. One line is my hagi net so let me see if I can get this right.

Could I just get my own router and run the two lines into that and then do the above?

If the problem is with not wanting games to "phone home" when LAN gaming, just use netstat to watch the ports that connect when you run the game, and then set your router to block those ports.

I have learned that some routers work better for this than others. For some reason, some routers will make the port unreachable, while others just never send the data, requiring a long pause for the game to timeout on the connection.

Isnt this why there are ROUTERS? (wired and wire-less)

ETA: nevermind, i'm too slow

If I understand correctly, a few of you want to network to play online games, but still want net access. A router will perform this task with almost no configuration necessary.

Just buy a router, and plug your internet access cable into the WAN port, then plug your machines into the LAN ports. And you will be able to play local games with each other while still seeing the internet. You can even play internet games together.
