Re: Two ISA NICs

I've got two ISA NICs (3com EtherLink III I guess).
And I've got a problem :)

A fragment of dmesg:
eth0 : 3c5x9 at 0x220, 10baseT port, address 00 10 5a dc ee bc, IRQ 5
eth1 : 3c5x9 at 0x300, 10baseT port, address 00 20 af 57 4d 4e, IRQ 10

Both of the cards are configured statically in
/etc/network/interfaces. However only one of the works at the time,
the second one behaves weird:

ifup eth1
interface eth1 already configured

ifdown eth1
SIOCDELRT: no such process

ifup eth1
SIOCSIFFLAGS: Device or resource busy
SIOCSIFFLAGS: Device or resource busy

The same goes for eth0 if eth1 have been raised first.

Any clues appreciated.

Try looking at my reply to a similar question and if that doesn't help...
