thats perfectly normal, one is the LAN connection - between the pc and your adsl modem, the other is the WAN connection - between the modem and the airtel server, both these connections are needed..there is nothing to rectify.

ok...thanks man...the prob is that is causin xfire to become slow and the pings are alarming!close to 300 at times....and when i goto services in the Internet Connections' only xfire is specified as a service and a specific port is open ONLY for that...This is obviously slowing it down.....If i check the speed of the conn, it is normal(240-145kbps)
Can u please help me out with this?

Thanks again
