Look at the files in /etc/sysconfig/networking/.

Code:
# 3Com Corporation 3c905C-TX/TX-M [Tornado]
DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=dhcp
HWADDR=00:08:74:46:D7:E5
ONBOOT=yes
DHCP_HOSTNAME=delllap.jesnet
TYPE=Ethernet
See if the HWADDR entries for each device is correct. If they are, I wonder if it could be an interrupt or device memory conflict. Maybe you could look at what the module options are, if any in /etc/modpobe.conf for eth0 and eth1.

You want to edit the files in /etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/

Not the files in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts

Hi, I have similar problem. Just the difference is instead of two cards I have only one card. And In /etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ I have nothing. The directory is empty. Any idea about what I should do?

PS :: I use CentOS 3.9 (Final) Server

Thanks!

Yes, you can open your own thread, for your own problem. This original thread is three years old, and the posts in this thread TELL YOU WHAT TO DO, if you read them.
