Volker yes sorry that is a typo. If I give the following command: ifconfig vx1 create I will recieve the error: ifconfig: SIOCIFCREATE: Invalid argument As far as dmesg goes. The only thing that is getting logged is a list of kernel interupts. I see all the other normal startup messages written to console and the 3/4 of the way through I see this big kernel interupt vector list scroll by but this was happening before I added the second care. These are the only things in /var/log/dmesg.today: *Handler Int
332 g_provider R *Handler Int
333 g_consumer R *Handler Int
334 g_bioq R *Handler Int
335 g_event R *Handler Int
371 vnode R *Handler Int
372 proc R *Handler Int
373 cdev R *Handler Int
374 bio R *Handler Int
375 buf R *Handler Int there are @ 900 or so lines containing similar entries this seems to be a seperate problme of course but it is impeding my troubleshooting of the NIC problem. If you have any ideas?

I think it's a typo that you use vx0 twice?

Is the card recognized in dmesg-output? Please show us the corresponding
