Yes, you can use your Ethernet NIC and your wifi radio. Or, you can use a USB Ethernet adapter. As long as you have dual interfaces. Interfaces can be physical PCIe NICs, WiFi, USB Ethernet, even virtual if you are doing VMs.I am just setting up a system and Blue Iris seems impressive. I have a HP 590 that I want to use but it is very limited on slots, however i do have wireless and ethernet on the 590, is there a way to use both of those for the dual nic setup or do i need to use a USB ethernet adapter that I bought for my FireTV because no longer use?
I am willing to buy a router that has VLAN but to be honest every router that I have found for $200 or less they all claim VLAN but it is only IPTV VLAN, suggestions for a router would be ok also if there is good guides on how to setup the VLAN (seen several Dream Machine videos that walk you through it and seem easy enough however that is $300).
If you are doing dual interfaces, you probably don't need to do VLANs. If you are interested in VLANs, you can check this out: VLAN design example
