Alright, so I have two network cards on my main computer and one of them I am using for LAN/internet connection.. I was wondering if i could just use the second one to connect another computer to that same connection going through my second network card. Instead of having to wire another 20 foot cable to the router.

Yes, it's possible if you setup internet connection sharing.

However, I really recomend running another 20ft cable, as ICS means you're PC is behind another router, and if you turn you're PC off your other PC will loose it's internet connection.

yes, like a pc to pc connection sharing internet. 7 foot chord would be a lot easier then running a 20 footer through my ceiling haha. I could just do it for now untill i feel like running that extra cord.
