Two nics, but only one can be used at once, why?

Hello people,

I have a pc ( at work) that has two nics (one is conected with our router and the other is conected with our lan), like this:
eth0 (lan) == ip
eth1 (router)==> ip
router ip ==>

The problem is that only one nic work at once, for example, when I configure one nic (e.x. eth0) all works fine but when I configure the second nic, one nic stop. Why? My Linux only accept one nic at once... this is my big problem at moment and if I couldn`t resolve it my boss will put a windows server on this machine.
Please, if anyone could help me to save our Linux territory, are welcome.

Strange indeed!!!

I've never had that kind of problem but it kinda sounds like irq conflict or something along that line.
Have you tried different nics?
What shows from the commands:dmesg | grep eth and lsdev ?
