Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide

I have usb-adsl router and rtl8139 nic. I have loaded successfully all the drivers reqd for both (CDCEther, uhci etc for router and 8139too for nic). I can see them in lsmod.
I have loaded router driver by edting /etc/rc.d/rc.modules
by adding a line
I put 2 lines in /etc/modules.conf
alias eth0 8139too
alias eth1 CDCEther
when i do
ifconfig eth0 up
i get nic up working
but when i do
ifconfig eth1 up
:unknown device or interface
why am i not getting eth1 up
it looks like my modules.conf isnt working
i dont know anything about modprobe.conf, what is it used for??
eth0: RealTek RTL8139 at 0xe03bdc00, 00:15:f2:03:80:3f, IRQ 5
eth0: Identified 8139 chip type 'RTL-8100B/8139D'
eth0: link down
I donts understand, i have a line 'alias eth1 CDCEther' in /etc/modules.conf. Linux is just noticing my eth0 and not my eth1.
Why is that? What should be your /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf if u want 2 network interfaces ??
yes i can see the module in lsmod. here is my output of lsmod

here is output of dmesg | grep CDCEther

usb.c: registered new driver CDCEther
it appears to me that there is no problem in loading the module. The problem appears to be in alias eth1 CDCEther thing. Thats why i doubt whether /etc/modules.conf gets executed or not?
i dont use dhcp, i have a broadband (adsl) connection which i get through the usb router (using rp-pppoe). I have not changed anything yet ( no kernel recompile etc) so its a fresh kernel. still i will check /boot/.config for that flag.
Thats right, i use bsnl connection. its very easy to do it with ethernet using nic but i have a pc connected to that nic. hence i have to go for usb. Actualy i have done this before but this time , i am not getting the problem.
the router is from some chinese/taiwanese company Huawei or something like that. But they have given drivers for linux on a cd (its nothing but the CDCEther driver which we get from a normal install)
I dont know what options are available on your router, but why cant you connect to it wth ethernet as you say it is easy. Your other pc could be networked through the router.
I googled for another option but could only find people with the same problem as you have.
Sorry I could not be more help.
