eth1 works fine, but eth0 does not


I would appreciate for any help in my case.

I am running FC5 and I am using the D-Link DI 524 which is connected to the internet. Now the problem I have, is that with both types (eth0, cable and eth1, wireless) I can connect to the D-Link router, but only through eth1 I can connect to the internet!


# ping -I eth0
PING ( from eth0: 56(84) bytes of data.
From icmp_seq=1 Destination Host Unreachable
From icmp_seq=2 Destination Host Unreachable
From icmp_seq=3 Destination Host Unreachable

# ping -I eth1
PING ( from eth1: 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from ( icmp_seq=1 ttl=230 time=240 ms
64 bytes from ( icmp_seq=2 ttl=230 time=244 ms
64 bytes from ( icmp_seq=3 ttl=230 time=237 ms

Why is that so different? And why does google have different IP adresses in that case? Maybe something is confuing the router? Maybe something wrong in my Network configuration? But for BOTH types (eth0, eth1) I can ping that router! Below are some more infos, please let me know if you need some more.

just an addition to my problem: I ran the script I have found and the essential problem for the wired connection (eth0) given is:

!!! CND0130E: There is more than one network card defined in the same subnet: eth1:eth0

I looked at the webpage to see what this error messge means, but I do not understand, neither how to fix it. The output of ifconfig is posted in the post just before.

Any ideas what is going on and how to fix that? I am configuring the network with system-config-network, but I cannot see any stange settings in there...

Well the script said that eth0 AND eth1 are in the same subnet IE: 192.168.0.x/24
try using diferent subnets . ( 192.168.0.x and 192.168.1.x for the other one )

and remember if you wanna go thru diferent interfaces you gotta tell the routing table the gateway ip for each one ( ie diferent tables/ diferent gw`s )
( how must it connect to the rest of the world thru that interface )
Oh and don`t worry about google having diferent ip`s ... they have WAY MORE than just 2 :-)
