HELP!! I installed a 2nd nic that also use the tulip driver
and the ifconfig shows that the eth0 in slot 3 and eth1 in
slot 4 got swapped so that the nic in slot 4 is now eth0
and the slot 3 nic shows as eth0.
I've checked the hardware addresses from winnt (this is a
dual boot machine) and everything is insync with the displayed
Also the ifconfig shows the ipaddr of eth0 as 192.168....
that was the commented out ipaddr in the rc.config; so where
did this "generic" ipaddr come from??
I just got ADSL and am trying to setup Linux with the DHCP
required by the ISP; tried the setup without the DHCP client
configured and I still get my configured ipaddr ignored by
ifconfig with the physical nics swapped by ifconfig.
The Linux version is SuSE 6.1 and had no problems when just
using a modem and my 2 computer network.....Somewhere the
192..etc ipaddr is hard-coded for ifconfig, but where?
The location on the motherboard didn't make a difference
with winnt but why Linux?
Hope to see a few answers/pointers to solutions....
