• Hey, as the title says I'd like to add my 4th NIC as I don't use right now to be used as an extra LAN-port.
    How can this be made? I tried adding the NIC and set it to the same static ip as LAN, but that isn't possible.0_1550438528986_nics.jpg

    Get a switch. Leave igb3 available for use as a router port.

    If you insist on doing that look at bridging igb1 and igb3 into a bridge and use the bridge for LAN.

    I got a 5-port switch today which is in LAN but it's full, and I want to buy a Ubiquiti PoE switch 8-60W (about $100) but I only need 1 port so therefore it's not really negotiable to buy one just for I need one extra port lol 😄 So I thought if it's easy to use it as a LAN-port in the meantime...
