    Hi guys,

    I am trying to get a PC at the church I attend to have both an Ethernet connection for network access and also a Ethernet connection that sends a control signal to the projector.

    The machine only has one Ethernet port. My question is if go and purchase a PCI express network card to put in the machine will the two network adapters work simultaneously or will windows not like the setup resulting in only one interface working at a time.

    Your feedback and suggestions will be much appreciated.

    James

    It should work as far as I know.

    Yes, it will be fine.

    However, you may need to do manual setup of addressing on the projector interface, depending on how it works.

    Are you referring to a static type IP configuration on the projector utility program?
