    You have a router right?

    If you can make things more clear people will be able to help you better.

    thanks for your response,

    right now they are connected to the internet through an airport network. but for file transfers that is so slow! so an ethernet solution for file transfers would be preferred....


    thanks for any responses!

    It's called a "route"

    The concept of a "route".

    As soon as you have multiple network connections you have to specify what goes to what interface. All OSes have what they call a "routing table". You will need to add routes to the routing tables on all computers with more then one network interface.
