How to add 3rd NIC card

By bubloob_13 ·
Dear All

I have redhat linux 9 , alrdy have two ethernet cards one is connecting to my internet gateway and otherone is connecting to my LAN. I want to add one more NIC, after fixing the working lan card into PCI slot , linux server detecting this new hardware, and i am configuring the same. But in network devices couldn't find eth2 ( eth0 - Lan, eth1- internet gateway). If i try to add manually also it's not getting activated... but in hardware list i am able to see the 3rd NIC card.

So i understood card is getting detected and configured, but i am not able to see eth2 anyware.... as i want to configure static routing for one more network.

Can anyone help me

Thanks in advance

Network card driver

by cjc5447 In reply to How to add 3rd NIC card

Have you loaded the correct driver for your 3rd NIC? (usually modprobe <drivername> will work.) You haven't said what NIC you used, but most brands are supported these days. Check the RH website for hardware compatibility info. You also might want to upgrade to the latest version of Fedora Core, which would have the latest NIC drivers included.
