I have TP-Link Gigabit ethernet card installed on the PC as 2nd NIC
eth0 onboard LAN nVidia chip
eth1 TP-Link NIC RTL chip
the driver is r8168-8.032.00.tar.bz2 download on;
I have further questions;
On booting the PC it prompts on screen;
RPL-ROM-ADR: 90F6 5203 5786
RPL-ROM-FFC: 1/50 (running from 1 to 50)
on each boot. Whether it is necessary? If NO how to skip it?
The cable used for eth0 is CAT5e connected to the router. Can I use CAT5 cable to connect eth1 to the same router? If YES I have spare CAT5 in store room. If NO I have to purchase a new CAT5e cable.
I need to set static IP address as follow:-
iface eth0 inet static
netmask 255.255.255.0 ?
iface eth1 inet static
Please help. TIA
