I had thought about doing that, but then if I put the PCs on the WRT too

about just doing dual-NIC. That sounds like a very safe method to do it. I
don't think any of the PCs are dual NIC on the MB, but NICs are cheap so
that is definitely one possibility.

Anyone else have suggestions on how to do this without going dual NIC?
Are two actual physical NICs even required anymore (except for physical redundancy)? I thought most LAN cards these days (even on PCs) would respond to multiple addresses. My network literacy takes a nosedive at this layer, so perhaps someone with more savvy could explain why you would or would not need an additional card.
