In a previous reply you said: "For 8139too driver, it is a network interface PCI card For r8169 driver, it is attached to the motherboard " I have seen before that the OS will change the device if you have a PCI and a built-in NIC. If you unplug the PCI NIC, the built-in NIC becomes eth0. With the PCI NIC plugged in, the built-in NIC becomes eth1 and the PCI becomes eth0. Try unplugging the PCI NIC to check whether this is the case with your machine; take note of the MAC address with the ifconfig command to track which one is which. I have not understood why this happens though. Maybe someone can shed some light here. ~af Hello, Is this problem in FC8 System only ? So, have you tried to find doc though the net ?<disclamer> I have not done this and I don't know whether that is accurate. </disclaimer> I did some reading. It appears that udev does the device switching. But if desired, the devices can be tied to a specific mac address. See this old thread --notice what they say about /etc/modprobe.conf. http://www.redhat.com/archives/k12osn/2005-September/msg00354.html Read this Debian related page: http://www.debianhelp.co.uk/udev.htm I don't now whether the problem is with F8 only. I haven't tried all the flavors. ~af
If disbale the onboard lan and install another INC, then, is there still the problem ?
