ah, and this be the case for me, at least until i get some more coax run.

i have two networks, one for each of my internet connections.

unfortunately, i have been running them all on the smae chunk of coax.

do you think this might be the problem with the ipl error i got?

is there a way to set the HW address of the second card?
