2nd network interface acts weird:neighbour table overflow


i have put the 2nd network card into my comp...
BTW how can i ensure that the 2nd card is really configured as the 2nd?
at boot the 2nd card is set up as eth0 even if in the modules i
specifyed it as eth1.. have to unload the odules once booted and load
them in reverse order.... there surely some more smart thing to do?

anyway, once the module is loaded and the thing configured (through
/etc/network/interfaces) it seems to be up and running (when looking at
ifconfig...) but once i try a ping:

PING ( 56 data bytes
neighbour table overflow
ping: sendto: No buffer space available
ping: wrote 64 chars, ret=-1

route -n
Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use
Iface   U     0      0        0
eth0   U     0      0        0
eth1         UG    0      0        0
looks ok to me and :
             total       used       free     shared    buffers
             Mem:        516512     105560     410952      25616
             20936      53500
             -/+ buffers/cache:      31124     485388
             Swap:       248996          0     248996

doesn't show any carence anywhere..... so where's the problem?
