Hi there. Thanks for the reply.
I tried changing the default route.. still I can ping other stuff on the
192.168.0.* network (the local stuff) and still nothing on the internet,
nor 220.127.116.11 (which I know is there and responds to pings!) BAsically,
it had no effect.. :-(

yep.. read that, was trying to do that when I realised that it had found
both cards anyway. Maybe because one's a Lance and one's an NE card; I dunno.
I did read in the hardware compatibility how-to, however, that the NI6510
is only semi-supported, although hamm seems quite happy with it. I have
had it as the only card, linked to the local network instead of the
internet, and it worked perfectly. I have also had both cards in place,
and swapped over the config, and it worked. So I know the card is
basically OK. The only difference between the internet use and the local
use is the local network is coax, and the cable modem needs a RJ45. But
the (dos based) setup utility tells me it's set to "Auto detect" anyway..

Thanks again for the response.
