Change IRQ for onboard SiS900 PCI Fast Ethernet Controller

This motherboard has a SiS900 PCI Fast Ethernet Controller onboard.
I looked thru the BIOS settings.
The BIOS does not have any option to change the IRQ for this controller.

Is there any other way to change the IRQ for this Ethernet controller?

In some bios you can define some or all IRQs as legacy isa. What ever the IRQ is now modify bios for that IRG to legacy ISA. That is all I know on the subject other than getting an pci card nic.

One other thought. If there are other pci cards then and spare pci slots. Then move them around to other slots. Make a note where it was before the swapping.
