Re: Problems getting 2 NICs to work.

Okay... I've been at this all day and I'm still not getting this working. At this point it almost seems as if the problem is really that the 2nd ethernet interface doesn't want to work.

I can configure eth0 (with a default/gateway) to be an AT&T ip address or a Spirnt IP address and leave eth1 disabled and everything works fine. I CAN NOT configure eth1 with one or the other and a default gateway and get it to work even with eth0 disabled.

I know that the NIC is fine as I've got the same system on Win2k3 server setup in the same fasion and it's working fine. So perhaps this is an issue specific to the Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5704 Gigabit Ethernet?

Any ideas? How about setting the 2nd IP address as a virtual device off of the eth0 interface. Would that serve to prove or disprove the possibility of it being a problem specific to fedorac1 & this card?

Those are wrong/incomplete. What shall and be,
the network address or the gateway?

ip route add dev eth0
ip route add dev eth1

To reply / correct myself:

ip route add $net/cidr via $gw

is the command syntax (see: ip route help). So it would be

ip route add via
ip route add via

(the gateway address following your given information so far and
trusting it is correct, while .254 is not necessarily the gateway IP of
a class C net)
