What brand/model (Intel, 3Com, etc.) cards and what drivers (e100, tlan,
tulip, etc.) are you using?
There are some occasional gotchas with IPCop's and NIC's

Subject: [LUNI] IPcop problems
This problem seems more fundamental than an "IPCop problem"
as it seems to be an issue with NIC drivers or IRQs or something like that.
Your help is appreciated.
I have 3 different NICs in a more than adequate machine and
the IPcop set-up phase went smoothly. All three cards were auto-detected,
assigned to green, red and orange interfaces and I assigned IP addresses to
them in a very typical way (i.e., the static IP assigned to RED, and
192.168.1.1 and 192.168.2.1 assigned to the others).
After rebooting the green interface came up and the DHCP server worked and I
was able to reach the admin pages via HTTP.
However, the red and orange interfaces did not come up and logs indicated a
"modprobe" error - modules eth1 and eth2 not found. I added aliases for
these devices in /etc/modules.conf and now I get errors from "insmod".
After the driver name (.o) the log says "no such device" with the hint that
it could be a problem with module parameters such as IO or IRQ params. I'm
not sure if I'm heading in the right direction with this.
I'm willing to go out an get different NICs but the appropriate drivers seem
to be in place so I'm not sure this would help.
