    New netword card


    Well first of all i'd like to say hi to all linux uers =] i am new here, and im new to linux too, been using it has my server for less then a week now, my friend gaved me a HUGE lift to install it, so i thought id give him a break by checking forums for help ^^

    anyway, to get back to my troubles. I have bought a second netword card, since i will be using a switch + router i need to use another network card to transfer at 1000mbps =], but yeah the thing is that my server wont detect my network card, i have tried recompiling, but it didn't do anything, i have also tried
    ifconfig eth1 up
    since my main eth is 0, if i am right my second network card should be eth1 :P anyway, its a D-link DGE 530T, i know its compatible, because its the same as my first one PLUS it says that it is compatible with linux kernel 2.6 =]

    thanks for reading, hope someone can help me if you have any question on my server lemme know, ill answer asap :P

    Hello and Welcome.
    Post the output of this command(as root) to find out which chipset is installed on the cards.
    Code:
    lspci -v |grep -i net
    If that doesn't work then just post then entire output of
    Code:
    lspci -v
    Next post the output of this command to find out which modules are being loaded.
    Code:
    lsmod
    The above command could possibly post a large output.

    You have the correct modules loaded, forcedeth for the nvidia and skge for the DGE-530T.
    Now all you should need to do is either set the connection with a network tool like Wicd or Network manager OR set this all by hand, as described in the Gentoo handbook.
    Post the output of
    Code:
    ifconfig

    Sorry, I've not had any experience with using more than one network card at once....I don't know what you need to do to accomplish that.
