I think you need to explain a bit better. To me it looks like you are
saying both of your interface cards are connected to the Internet (If I
understand Marc correctly he's using an common abbreviation for Internet,

Do you really mean both cards are connected to the Internet, if so, tell
us a bit more about how you have them connected.

Are both of your interface cards the same type broadcom card?

There is also the chance that udev has identified a single card as, first
eth0 and, second eth1 but that is not what you seem to be saying.

Someone here can probably provide you with a useful answer if you first
