Lan card problem - Two devices for the same card


Hello guys,

I am using FC4 x86_64. I have two LAN cards for two internet
connections. One of them is the onboard NVIDIA chipset card. The other
one is a Davicom Semiconductor 8139 card.

The problem I am facing is that, in my Network Connections under
Gnome, I see my NVIDIA card as eth1(forcedeth) which seems to be fine,
but for the Davicom card I get an eth0 as well as another network
device which is also detected as the same LAN card with a random device
number that changes every time I reboot my system. For example, dev xxxx where xxxx keeps changing every time I reboot.

I hope you guys understand what I am trying to say and suggest me a solution.

The problem is that before dialing to my connection, I have to change the device name to devxxxx, which changes with every reboot.

Also, Firestarter requires the same step to be turned on.

You can't just use eth0? Also, what driver are you using for this card?

Fedora Core automatically takes a default driver for the card and it works perfect but as some devxxxx but not as eth0, just as I mentioned earlier.
