One computer with 2 different IP addresses???

Hi there, I have a computer with two partitions. The reason for this is that I will use my minor partition for playing online games with my mates. I use a wireless broadband router and want to add my games partition to the DMZ (non firewalled zone). Is it possible to have two different IP addresses - one for each partition or can I only have one IP address for one MAC address?

Thanks, F.T.

you have 1 ip address for the internet, allocated by your isp. One ip per connection.
Each network adaptor also has ONE ip address.
So the answer is no.

you can configure firewalls to work at program level, i.e. tell them to give full access to particular programs such as your games.
