2 ethernet card problem


I have two ethernet cards which are same, SURECOM Myson EP 320X S 1. I bought the second one today to set up a cable internet connection. On the opening kudzu recognised the ethernet card and configured. But when I tried to use Red Hat 9.0 network conf. tool I couldn't see the card there. I was expecting to see a copy of the previous one. Then I tried to install manually, by clicking "new" on the hardware menu. I looked at the hardware description of the previous one which was writing fealnx, so I looked for fealnx on the menu but there isn't such an option. Now I cannot install the second ethernet card although it is the same with the previous.

heelp me . what can I do..

I also know that the card working, I tried it on a windows machine

I am so despair and this is a urgent issue, please comment on this

use this cmd dmesg to see if the card was really detected by Linux. If it was seen the promplem maybe that the card is not being activated upon boot up. try the following cmd netconfig --device eth1 this will allow u to config the second NIC ans activate it on bootup. There are other ways but this is the easiest for now.

I wrote
dmesg
and saw a ethernet card eth1, then I wrote
netconfig --device eth1
and set the parameters. But I got this messege

Determining IP information for eth1:0...SIOCSIFFLAGS:Cannot assign requested address SIOCSIFFLAGS:Cannot assign requested address failed.

Now what can I do, can there be a proxy problem? or other thing like firewall. I don't understand these issues. Please help me !

It seems that uyour second network card has a ip associated to it already. This maybe because it's connected to your isp which dynamivally assigns a addr to that NIC. Try this cmd ipconfig to view the ip assigned to all nic on the system and post me the result.

ipconfig

command not found

where is ipconfig
ipconfig:


By the way I learned that this IP 195.174.128.1 is the gateway to the cable connection server,

I have done this option on

Automatically obtain IP address settings with DHCP
Automatically optain DNS information from server

My friend can connect his XP via ethernet connection and has these

IP address: 195.174.138.67
Subnetmask: 255.255.240.0
standartgateway: 195.174.128.1

I don't know if I can give further information...
thank you for your help
I guess I don't have that

The resaon that u might not be able to ping that addr is that the ISP has blocked pings to that addr therefor it will not answer with a ping. cat /etc/sysconfig/networking/device/ifcfg-eth0 and cat /etc/sysconfig/networking/device/ifcfg-eth1 and post this information as displayed on u'r screen. The answer is no to the proxy this is only applicable if u trying to use a service of some sort and it's going through a proxy.
