Fedora Core3 with 2 ethernet cards

  1. Hi,

    I've installed a second network card in my box. It's seem to works...but

    My Problem:

    Card #1 (onboard card) =
    Card #2 (Dlink pci) =

    If I disconnect the cable from the card #2 and try to ping it's not working... and I still can ping ...that's fine.

    But if disconnect the cable from the card #1, I can't ping both !

    Is this normal ? Do I have to configure something ?

    Most likely your routing table defines routes only through the first network adapter.
    You can fix this by adding alternative routes through the other one.

    Are you trying to set up some sort of a failover system?
    If yes, then it would be much better to do it with the Linux ethernet bonding driver.
