Looks like you need to change the ip address for to something like 192.168.1.xx (note: xx should be replaced with actual numbers).

you should check the kernel's routing table:
#route -n
$man route

Smile 2 network cards

I am not able to ping from eth0 ( to router ( So, my eth1 has a cable to the router and eth0 do not have cable attach to any switch or router. So, I use the ping command to do the ping:

ping -I

However, this is not success. So, how do I tell the computer to send the packet from to eth1 then to router. Is the route cmd able to do it? Please enlighten me!

Actually, my ideas is to want my pc to be another router again so that I have different segment of ip address.
