I have two NIC's in one box. One Ethernet wired and one Orinoco
Silver wireless. I can't get the wireless NIC to ping the Linksys
base station if the wired NIC is not plugged in.
eth0 192.168.1.88 wired NIC
eth1 192.168.1.92 Wireless NIC.
If I bring up the box without the eth0 plugged in I can see the proper
config. on eth1 the wireless NIC but it will not ping the WAP. I know
that the NIC is picking up a WAP signal because the MAC address of the
WAP shows up in the config. via iwconfig.
If I bring up the box with eth0 plugged in and then ping the WAP I of
course I will have a good connection VIA the wired NIC eth0. I then
take down eth0 #ifconfig eth0 down.
I still have a good link on eth1. I can then unplug eth0 and eth1
