Having problems with your IBM NetVista A40 PC Desktop ?

2 ethernet cards can't work together

\015 I'm using windows NT 4.0. 1 nic is Intel Pro/100 VE Desktop connection which has extension PCI slot, the other one is IBM 10/100 EtherJet PCI Management Adapter which plug in the extension PCI slot. I install the Intel pro/100 drivers, both nics can be seen in the network. But only IBM one can connect to other PC. After I disable IBM one, the Intel one works. If I delete IBM adapter and then install a IBM driver, the Intel one works while the IBM one doesn't. If I disable the Intel one, the IBM one works again. Seems they just could't work together. I tried in windows XP, there is no that problem. The 2 nics can work fine. I appreciate if someone could help me!\015

Answers :

If in your network you are connecting computers directly to a PC thru multiple nics and not a router or hub leaving one as server and the others as clients and that server is NT 4,0

\015\012NT 4,0 can not auto configure the cat5 cable and would need at least 1 cable to be a cross-over and not a patch.
