    Hi, i've an A8N-SLI deluxe.
    Wich LAN connector should i use? Does it matter if i use the NFORCE4 or the
    Marvell? It's only for getting on the internet, but there is a router in
    between. Does that matter?

    Obviously you don't have a need for two so use the one that works
    best in a speed test.

    Here's a good one:

    Then, go into the setup and disable the other one.

    ok, but just curious: why should you use both of them simultanously? Can
    image you can use one for your internet and the other to connect another
    comp, but the ports only work if the computer is on, isn't it? (so the other
    comp cannot use the internet conncetion when the comp is off).

    And why didn't they choose for 2 of the same connectors, or is it
    technically not possible?

    Assuming he is using a regular router, and not euphemistically talking about
    another comp being used as a router, then I doubt it will matter much which
    LAN adapter he uses. He will likely limited by his net connection anyway.
    Even ISA LAN adapters were 10 Mb, his router is probably 100 Mb.

    If two computers with Gb LAN adapters are connected through a 100 Mb router,
    they will only connect at 100 Mb.

    There's really no need to disable the other adapter at all.
