This is probably a common hardware configuration. I have a wireless NIC in my notebook
and a built-in NIC. My wireless NIC is 10 times slower than my built-in NIC so I prefer
to just plug in the built-in NIC when I can.
I would like to have them both going to the same router. In my Windows partition I have
a "Network Bridge" to bridge together the NICs. The soft bridge has its own IP address.
The advantage is that I don't have to configure anything or do anything. It just works.
Is there a software bridge like this in FreeBSD?
