My show laptop's LAN NIC has crapped out. I just found this out as I was starting to test some E68x units. I am not happy at the moment, as this is not that old of a computer. My intent this season was to leverage the wireless NIC to communicate with my home network, and then use the LAN to drive E1.31 and my RGB elements. I tested this about a year ago on the same laptop and all seemed to function OK. I was told that if I wanted to have 2 networks, (and not want to replace the laptop) that I should use an external USB Ethernet Adaptor. Does anyone have any knowledge of using one of these for this purpose? Any suggestions on a particular device? Any advise on set up? Is it just the same modifying IP address as the internal NIC? Thanks ahead of time.
