Things look quiet here. But I've been doing a lot of blogging at
dan.langille.org because I prefer WordPress now.
Not all my posts there are FreeBSD related.
I am in the midst of migrating The FreeBSD Diary over to WordPress
(and you can read about that here).
Once the migration is completed, I'll move the FreeBSD posts into the
new FreeBSD Diary website.
Adding a second network card (and compiling a kernel)29 August 1998
Don't forget to create a device for your new NIC. In
my case, I'm adding a second NE2000 card to create ed1. Here's what I
made sure the kernel contained:
device ed0 at isa? port 0x280 net irq 10 iomem 0xd8000 vector edintr
device ed1 at isa? port 0x300 net irq 5 iomem 0xd8000 vector edintr
You will need to add a similar entry according to the type of device you are adding.
Remember to set the IRQ and IOMEM settings correctly. The above settings are
based on the settings on your physical network card. Many cards come with a floppy
disk which allows you to set the values. Others are Plug and Play.
I'm sorry, but I don't have more information on card settings.
Testing the new interface
In connecting to the network, there is a section dealing with
testing the new interface. I suggest you use that for the remainder of this task.
