I have not purchased a motherboard with dual lan before but was wondering how it actually works.   Can I assign one lan to go to the internet and the other one to go to our local network?  I have that now with some of my computers but we actually just ordered an add on nic and did it that way.  The board I'm talking about is the GIGABYTE GA-AX370-GAMING 5.  Thanks.

There are multiple ways you could use this. You are right, you could have one go to your lan and one to the internet. You could also run a virtual firewall between the ports. 

Another possibility is to use these together ( i forget the name of the protocol ) and have 2 gigabit speeds to your LAN.
