Quickie- Entering IRQ & port for netconf


Installing two realtek8139 NICs.

How do I find out the port for the card? Is it the address found by using ifconfig eth0 (or eth1)?

And should setting the IRQ and port aolve any conflicts?

Cheers.

you should not have to assign IRQ's for your Network Interface Card (NIC) in most cases (unless you have not disabled PNP in your bios). Linux will display all the IRQ information you will likely need if you sign in as root, open a terminal, and type:

cat /proc/interrupts

for all the information you will likely need about your two realtek NIC's
type:

ifconfig -a (to display all network connections whether up or down)

and

lspci -v (lspci is a utility for displaying information about all PCI buses in the system and all devices connected to them; the -v tells lspci to display more detailed information about all devices.

if you need help configuring your NIC's, try

Did you tried to install them and they were used same IRQ ?

realtek 8139 are PCI cards and all you have to do is to:

# modprobe 8139too

And them works.
