Need a good guide for setting up dual Nic's
Does anyone know were I can get a good guide for setting up dual nic's on my pc. Basically I have installed 2 nic cards into the one machine, instead of adding a hub/router. I am having problems getting the 2nd nic enabled , as I wont to use it for an Xbox connection. So I can just keep the xbox hooked into my pc without having to change the connections for xbox live.
just to lazy to bend down to change over the leads

Not for sure why the second nic would not work I have 3 nic's in one box and they all work fine. This is a silly question I know but does the nic show good in DV?

The second nic is showing good DV, I used to use it in my system before I upgraded my board so now Im using the onboard one. But for some reason I cant get it enabled now that I have 2 in my box??
I want to bridge the connections but cant do this until its enabled

try changing the slots. Also try finding the latest drivers for the NICs.
It could be an IRQ conflict but I doubt it. Have you checked each NIC separately to make sure they both function?
I have two NICs installed and both work flawlessly.

There may be a setting that wont allow PCI NIC to work concurrently with the onboard NIC ie sound and vga problems.
There may be a fix for it or drivers etc.

hmm I will try a different pci slot and see if there are any latest drivers for this nic, its probably just something simple
