Installed WiFi Drivers and now my Network card dont work

Yup its me the pain again

Ive installed the drivers and got my Wifi card to light up now ........ i cant set it up 100% until i get home.

I use WiFi at home and Wired Lan at work.

After installing the drivers etc as explained here


I now cant seem to get my onboard lan to work on my Compaq e500

My WiFi card is showing up as eth0 and my Wired Lan is showing as eth1

Where am i going wrong.

Thanks peeps

are you using dhcp or static ip's?

post your ifconfig, iwconfig and /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1
