Driver Module for ethenet card
I have installed linux debian with seperate partitions and several packages.
When I ifconfig It sees the ethernet card and all of the related files in etc/ are configured (I think) correctly to connect to the internet but I can't even ping an IP so I don't think anything is getting to the card.
I believe I need to load the driver modules. Please could someone explain the process of adding a driver module and getting it to work each time you boot up.
I have a 3com card, I know the addresses, IP, hardware, interupt etc. I even know which driver I need and know that the card is compatible. Its an ethernet network card and its eth0.
I actualy have two cards in because this will be run as a NAT proxy server running a LAN. I have heard there can be hick ups with two NICs?
Any help greatly appreciated.
