Re: Network Oddities

"what's in ifconfig.wm0"
cat /etc/ifconfig.wm1
media autoselect

I simply copied ifconfig.wm1. And, yes, they were connected to the same network.

Why? Total ignorance. I'm learning.

I'd like to thank you and Andy for responding. Believe it or not it does help.

however the only ifconfig file is ifconfig.wm1. Everything works. Reading
through the docs, the recommendation is to have an ifconfig.if for each
interface. The dhcpcd service is up and running without issue. I copy
ifconfig.wm1 to ifconfig.wm0 and restart the network. But I get an error:

Well the first question is: what's in ifconfig.wm0 and ifconfig.wm?
If you try to assign the same address to both, for example, that is
likely to fail.
Also: these two ethernet cables you mention, are they both connected to
the same network, or to different networks? The first is usually not
helpful, unless you specifically set up load sharing or something
