  I'm not aquainted with any PC NICs that allow use of both connections.
There _are_ quite a few multiport NICs, but every one I've seen had 2 or
4 identical connections. Usually 10bT.
  If you're after linking the Amiga network to "the world", I can offer
several very simple (and cheap) ways to build a gateway PC. Like $40
