nic configuration problem in IPCop

marshal_race
Hi Members, I'm installing IPCop on my 500MHz intel processor PC. All the minimum requirements are fulfilled. I want to use Green+Blue+Red scheme for that I have 3 Realtek 8139D NICs. When the time of Green configuration comes, everything works file such as the card is found while probing and so on. When I want to configure RED and/or Blue, IPCop is unable to probe the other network cards even though they're same as green interface card. I'm also unable to find the additional parameters for RealTek nic such as io and irq to manually configure them. I've been trying to fix this problem for 2 nights and now I'm totally exhausted. Finally I had 2 options, 1st ask for help, 2nd give up and throw out PC on the road. Please help me since I've choosen the 1st option.

    Have you actually gone into whatever works as a System Monitor and made sure that you actually have all 3 NIC installed?

    That would be the first thing that I would be looking at and then you can start to work from there.

    This may sound crazy but you might get the info from both cards by running a live distro of Linux. I'm trying to set up IpFire myself and had to use the crunchbang distro to get the detailed info on both cards. IF you don't have your hands on a live distro, try downloading and installing an application called SIW (System Information for Windows) which is a free program. This will give you a detailed analysis on your system.
