I think I'll need to make thing clearer.
1. I have two ethernet card on a Freebsd box pc, ed0 to internet ed1 to
2. I found that the local connection is slow and not reliable, while the
internet connection works perfectly.
3. I do not know why, and tried adding static routes and fails.
4. As another case which might has relation with this problem, I also met
some problem during installation. I use ftp installation from a site
inside China. When I set internet-connected netcard to ed1 and local to
ed0, the installation always fails. And the system auto-load some
interfaces which I did not assign, like ppp connection via lpt0. When I
swtich back the ed0 and ed1 setting, it works but not reliable, often
break during the installation. I have to set ONE ed0 to the internet
connection and disabled the ed1, and thus the systems works fine. It
should not be my pc or netcards' problem, since I have running Linux
1.2.x and Linux 2.0.x on it for more than a year and everything works
Thanks for any further suggestions and best regards,
