Unhappy Cotrol two Network Adaptors with NetworkManager

hi all,

I am using opensuse 10.2, on AMD Athlon X2 3600+ Nforce 430. I have 2 Network adaptors 1 is the realtek PCI Ethernet card and the other is Integrated Nvidia Network Controller. Both are Installed properly. I want use Realtek for my Local Network, and Integated NIC for my Broadband Connection for which i use D-Link GLB 502T ADSL Router (Connected thru ethernet to Nvidia Network Controller).

In WinXP I am able to Enable/Disable individual NIC and also get status in system Tray for the same. Is there any way i can do the same in opensuse 10.2 using NetworkManager(NM). Cause when Both NIC are enabled NM only shows status for realtek NIC.

how do i Enable/Disable individual NIC.

I donno how to go bout tht please help me out here...

Thanks in advance...

be sure that all information for your eth devices is commented out in your /etc/network/interfaces file. Just leave the:

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

in place. NetworkManager manages between my wireless and ethernet just fine. I'm not sure of anything that would be different for two ethernet adapters.
