your approach with two ethernet-cards looks reasonable.
but you have to manage the routing on this particular machine.
if the ip-address the provider gave you is in a different subnet, you are set and ready to go.
if not, you have a problem which you can solve by either implementing complex routing or changing your internal addressspace.
if it does not work with the two interfaces, try debugging with ping/traceroute and look for problems.
maybe you should get in contact with local professionals to fix this issue.
