configuring two bge network cards. (GA302T)

Post by Vicky Val » Wed, 20 Aug 2003 00:29:21

I am have a little trouble configuring/Detecting my network cards.
There are two netgear ga302t net cards in my machine.
These use the bge driver, as far a i can see.
Problem is, there is no bge1 to configure.
The machine only detects bge0.

output of ifconfig bge0 is:
inet netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast
inet6 fe80::209:5bff:fe60:143b%bge0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x1
ether 00:09:5b:60:14:3b
media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX <half-duplex>)
status: active

my only guess is that the option=3 in ifconfig is binding my two cards
together to act as one,
This is not the desired operation if it is doing this.

Any help in configuring the cards would be greatly appreciated.

1. Configuring two network cards in an RPC

2. Two Network Cards - how to configure

My Gigabyte GA-K8NNXP mobo has two LAN connectors both independantly

I would like to use the second LAN to connect directly to my HP Laserjet 4
which uses 192.168.13 ( as it's setup - by doing this I should
be able to dump the hub and it's cables, power etc.

Presently the printer connects to the hub along with the other home computer
on ( via the mobo's first LAN port on
( - all working properly including ICS.

However I cannot access the printer via the second LAN port regardless of
what IP address etc I use. The status is "connected" so I assume the
electrics are ok and I have confirmed the link speed is correct - just no
action. When I spool a file to the printer I note the send light flashing -
I assume this is sending stuff to the printer but there is no response being
sent back - or the send is not being received.

I note that the Gigabyte card has a 'bridging' facility - I tried this but
being a little (totally!) ignorant on what one would use this for or if it
would be of use in this application it did not advance my case!

Hope this makes sense ....
