Switching network card, Debian Woody


I've installed a new network card on a computer running Debian Woody. The drivers are installed, and I am sure it is working properly. (I didn't install the drivers my self)

I want to use the new card instead of the old. It doesn't apear in ifconfig yet. Can someone point me in the right direction for Woody? Thanks

Do /etc/init.d/networking restart as root then check /var/log/syslog to see whether it has found and loaded the driver and recognised the card.

I can't see anything in the syslog. It had been working though. It was setup but forgot the configuration on restart. Unless the drivers get removed when it is restarted. Unfortunatly I didn't do it so I can't remember how.

If you cannot see it in the syslog then its not loading. Its likely the driver was loaded as a module. Find out which driver it was and then either use insmod or use modconf to install the driver.

The module is dge528 and it appears in the list when I do 'lsmod'
Code:
dge528                 11808   0  (unused)
(Edit)Ah, I just did a ifconfig -a and I see eth1 listed. I assume this is the second network card.
Code:
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:10:5A:49:5E:19

Assign an address to eth1 by editing /etc/network/interfaces and you should be good to go.

Ah thanks

I just replaced eth0 with eth1. However the card now fails to connect to the new gigabit switch for which it was intended(I'm sure it worked before!). That's probably a different challenge

This is normally hardware based. i.e. check cables etc.
