Is the network card detected? Check to see if the module loaded, if you compiled it in as a module, with /sbin/lsmod. Look at the output of dmesg as well to see if it is detected at boot time.

the airport extreme won't work under linux. That airport driver is for the older airport cards.

for the wired card type:

modprobe sungem

as root. then ifconfig, etc as normal.

Is the module compiled on your computer? Check under /lib/modules for your kernel and look under kernel/drivers/net/ to see if the module is listed. If it's not there, you will have to add it.

For example (on my AMD box), I use the tulip module. I find it under /lib/modules/2.6.4/kernel/drivers/net

Did you do this step for eth1?


Code:
 

# cd /etc/init.d
# ln -s net.eth0 net.eth1
# rc-update add net.eth1 default




Then try running
Code:
/etc/init.d/net.eth1 start

Edit /etc/config.d/net to

Code:
# Global config file for net.* rc-scripts

# This is basically the ifconfig argument without the ifconfig $iface
#
#iface_eth0="dhcp"
iface_eth1="dhcp"

Now if you want eth0 to use DHCP just uncomment that line out to make it look like this.......


Code:
# Global config file for net.* rc-scripts

# This is basically the ifconfig argument without the ifconfig $iface
#
iface_eth0="dhcp"
iface_eth1="dhcp"



That should do it.
