|SUBJECT ||Re: [hangout] Linksys Module Compile
If it says "1" under "Used by," I'm pretty sure that means it's identified a
relevant NIC and you can use it. It is possible to load some of the more
generic NIC modules without it actually attaching itself to card, but I think
it would say "0" in that case.
Did you say you already one NIC installed? Do you want this one to be eth1?
/sbin/ifconfig eth1 up 192.168.0.1 netmask 255.255.255.0
(or whatever your IP address is, that's an internal address)
The information in /proc/pci is irrelevant, I believe. It's just telling you
want the pci part of the kernel can gather from reading bits on the chip. I
don't believe it's affected by loaded modules. Consider that the tulip module
runs many different cards, so it wouldn't even be able to identify the card by
