Hi There,

I have a desktop computer, with 2 wireless cards and one wired network port in it.

I am using Ubuntu - with GNOME.

NetworkManager takes care of there being a wired and wireless card in there - no probs, however, using 2 wireless cards is a bit of bother... I cannot seem to get ubuntu to realise there are 2 cards. It seems to just select a card and go with it. I have tried to remove one card and use the other, and this works fine. but for some reason, when there are 2 cards in the computer, only one will work at one time...

why?
is there a solution?

Cheers,

Lukus

Network Manager cannot handle more than one wired or wireless interface at a time. You'll have to configure the rest manually through /etc/network/interfaces and /etc/resolv.conf

I stand corrected, was added to 0.7. Unless someone has experience with multiple wireless interfaces and network manager, manual configuration is still the best bet though.
