Thread hijacking does not mean that you reask a question previously
answered, but that your own posting appears to be part of an unrelated
topic. So your mail header contains

And yes, this is the proper "forum" for asking such questions regarding
Fedora use.

I am confused by you mentioning class C's. So you have 2 complete class
C nets your own, meaning and That would
means 2 times 256 IPs (508 usable). Or are you just speaking of 2 IPs,
both each from a class C net? That would make a big difference.

Do both NICs appear in "cat /proc/interrupts"? Does look the output of
"ifconfig" proper? Can you ping the local IPs itself?
