DSL modem loopback question

    I host a 3d world in what is called active worlds. I can have bots enter
    my world if I start the bot from another computer outside of my local
    network. But if I try and start a bot from within my local network, the bot
    can't enter my world.
    I've been told this is because my dsl modem does not support loopback.
    In looking around I saw one poster say if you install another ethernet card,
    have both cards connected to the router and set the ip address of the new
    card to the wan address of the router, this should do the same as what a dsl
    modem with loopback capability would.
    Has anyone else heard of this workaround, or know if it would work?

    Thanks!
