1 NIC to 2 NIC Change, CEICW disables WAN NIC?

    This network was once a 1 NIC network, now setup as a 2 NIC network with a
    WAN facing NIC connected to an SMC Gateway router, and a LAN facing NIC. I
    have set up both with static IPs and the interface works; however, in the
    process to setting up remote access and rerunning CEICW and/or remote access
    wizards then WAN facing NIC looses connectivity (invalid address).

    The CEICW resets the gateway and DNS servers to the LAN side IPs
    (192.168.1.1). The remote access wizard does not. To resolve is set up DHCP
    let it get an address and connect then reset back to the original static IPs.

    Here is the current IPCONFIG/ALL:

    C:\>ipconfig /all

    Change the DNS on the external adapter (currently pointing to 10.1.10.2) to
    point to the internal DNS 192.168.1.1
