Simple NIC question


I am trying to setup a second NIC in my computer, is there a command to run that will tell me what IO port it is using. I did a cat /proc/ioports and I didn't see it there.

RedHat should have detected it. Try kudzu from cli (not with x running) and see it it detects it. If not you will have to identify the NIC and try insmod ing the correct module for it, unless it's the same module as your first NIC.

A google search for Linux and the manufacturer or model will usually turn up the correct module for it. Or search the bbs es for hardware references. I can't think of any of the hardware references location at the moment, and don't have any bookmarked (/my bad)

I don't know how to identify the I/O and / or IRQ until you have the module loaded, and by then you normally wouldn't care because it's working. I thought kudzu and pnpisa would take care of that for you...

man modules & modules.conf for the details

Ryan,

The driver disk for your NIC should have come with a program to identify and adjust the IO and IRQ of the NIC. You also should disable Plug and Play on the NICS.

Each NIC manufacture calls the program some thing else, but setup was common.

Good luck on getting the dual NIC's working.
Bob

I was able to set the io and IRQ on the 2nd NIC however the program that writes to the EEPROM on the NIC says that my second NIC is ETH0, when I 'ifconfig eth0' it brings up my 1st NIC. Also when I lsmod the module isnt listed. Should I compile my kernel with driver in it? =(
