NIc card not showing up in winipcfg

By rnnger ·
I have installed a second Nic card in my computer but, when using winipcfg it doesn't show up. It is in the TCP stack and can be be hard coded for the Lan. I have uninstalled , changed PCI slots,rebuilt the tcp stack from scratch. Still no second Nic card showing up in Winipcfg. Does any one have any Ideas.

We have problems with Lynksys cards living with other cards. What kind of motherboard (What does it display on boot?) and what are the two cards??
does the card show up by itself, without the first card in slot??? Is the first card built into the motherboard?? alot of questions I know but they all bear on the problem.
let me know............

Depending on the motherboard you have, you may have to go into the BIOS setup to identify the 2nd NIC. It is not always auto-sensed by the system. Not knowing what OS you are running leaves many variables. If you're running W2K, you may want to check the compatibility list at: http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/server/howtobuy/upgrading/compat/default.asp. I assume you are running at least NT since you refer to the TCP/IP stack.

Another option is to ensure the most current drivers areinstalled for that device. And no matter what OS you are running, make sure you have all Windows Updates installed.

Hope this helps!

You didn't mention what OS you are using. Not all OSs support multiple Nics also called multi-homed. Make sure yours does. Then go from there. Windows networking will allow you to bind additional IP addresses to a single interface. WinRoute requires that you do this before creating mappings for each IP address.
Check out this article on tech net and see if it helps, Q166159 NetBIOS Connections from Multi-homed.

In such a scenario you will assign 5 IP addresses to your external Interface (linking to the Internet) and run web servers on other computers within your Internal network on private IP addresses such as 10.x.x.x or 192.x.x.x.

Then you will define 5 port mappings in the Port Mapping dialog. For each web server (domain) you will define:

Listen IP address: (IP address associated with the domain name. This IP must be bound to the external adapter).
Listen port: 80 in our scenario
Destination IP address: the IP address which runs the web server
Destination port: 80(HTTP)
Port Mapping
Port mapping (or Port Address Translation - PAT) is the process where packets arriving to a particular IP address/port can be translated and thus redirected to a different IP/port. This functionality is a way to create a persistent passage through NAT. Port Mapping is only necessary for incoming connections, not returning traffic.

You may have missed something such as checking the ip forwarding box. Also don't forget to configure the Gateway for each Nic card to reflect the TCP/IP address for the other card.
