Indeed, I see no mention of eth1 here, but perhaps its not configured?

I know that both eth0 and eth1 "work" in that I can plug the asus

Does "ifconfig eth1" tell you anything?


[root localhost ~]# ifconfig eth1

eth1 is neither UP, nor has any IP address information (no IPADDR, no NETMASK, no BROADCAST) so TCP/IP will not work over it. Furthermore, regardless of what may be attached to the network it is plugged into, none of your routing referes to it (probably a side effect of not being configured! B^)

thank you all so much for the help here :)

If you have no devices on the eth1 network which will be DHCP servers, you'll either have to run one on your Linux computer for it, or you'll have to configure the TCP/IP staticly (ie, pick a private subnet network address for it, and configure the network interface at boot time, and configure all devices on that network so that they all have different address in the same subnet. Basic TCP/IP administration, this is what we used to do before there was a DHCP standard!)

I'm pretty sure that if you run system-config-network (as root) you'll see that the eth1 interface is *NOT* active. However, don't despair, its the right tool to configure that interface for you!
