I have two routers:
Router A 192.168.X.X
Router B 192.168.Y.Y
My PC has two jacks for two Ethernet cables.
My PC is hooked up to one router (Router A) creating my first Local Area Connection.
I was bored, so.... I took my second Ethernet cable and hooked it up to my second router (Router B) using my second Ethernet port.
Now my computer has two LAN connections active, to two different routers that have two different setups in terms of the IP's.
I'ts kind of cool having two different IP's on one PC on my LAN both active, but I was just wondering if I should disable one, and just use one, so far I don't see any problems, at least yet.
Both connections are working fine, but the question was are there any benefits of doing this or any free or open source tools that I could use to analyze my network to see if there is a gain in this setup or not.
My main default gateway router controls the connection to the WAN on which I have these two routers (Router A & Router B) connected. So I was thinking the speed would be regulated here for the most part in addition to the ISP and type of service one is getting from them, and the fact that I have additional connections to two separate routers on one PC should not make a difference..., still not sure?
