Default Re: 2nd NIC is off on Asus M2N-SLI Deluxe (nForce 570 SLI MCP)

Indeed, it is remapped by udev:

# cat /etc/udev/rules.d/z25_persistent-net.rules
# This file was automatically generated by the /lib/udev/write_net_rules
# program, probably run by the persistent-net-generator.rules rules file.
# You can modify it, as long as you keep each rule on a single line.
# MAC addresses must be written in lowercase.

# PCI device 0x10de:0x0373 (forcedeth)
SUBSYSTEM=="net", DRIVERS=="?*", ATTRS{address}=="00:18:f3:67:88:d1", NAME="eth1"

# PCI device 0x10de:0x0373 (forcedeth)
SUBSYSTEM=="net", DRIVERS=="?*", ATTRS{address}=="00:18:f3:67:97:8f", NAME="eth2"

# PCI device 0x10b7:0x9055 (3c59x)
SUBSYSTEM=="net", DRIVERS=="?*", ATTRS{address}=="00:50:04:63:51:3f", NAME="eth0"

# PCI device 0x8086:0x107d (e1000)
SUBSYSTEM=="net", DRIVERS=="?*", ATTRS{address}=="00:15:17:0e:84:df", NAME="eth3"
I added the Intel card as a replacement for the faulty on-board NIC, the problem shows without this card, too. Yet, I can't remember whether I ever tested without the 3com card. Tomorrow I will test again, with both additional network cards removed.

Maintainer: You mean Manfred Spraul? I found his name in forcedeth.c, but he is not listed in MAINTAINERS.
