    I've installed a second NIC on my main computer (Windows 7 64 bit) and the original built-in NIC has disappeared from the Network & sharing folder.
    It does appear in Task Manager and does work when the new NIC is disabled.
    I'd like to be able to see it in Network & Sharing folder.
    any Ideas?

    Manually configure them to different IP addresses?

    No matter what I do I can only see the second card. The original card is not visible in Network and Sharing folder, so I can't change it's settings. I've given the second card a Low address and the original was already set by DHCP as a High address.
    regards,
