san802k, I have moved your post from the thread you have posted it to and moved to a separate one.

The error you get appears when the settings are too high (or have too close range) that the system can't find a resonable resolution and refresh rate. Look into your /etc/X11/XFree86Config-4 (or similar file in /etc/X.org/) and please show us what you have in the lines beginning with HorizSync and VertRefresh (in Section "Monitor").

Without any information on which network cards these are (or which chips they use) you probably won't get many useful answer. I suggest you post some info about this
