When I do
ifconfig on my laptop I get
HWaddr ec and than an address, this is next to
eth0. Note that my IPv4 address only appears next to eth1 so I assume my laptop uses the
eth1 network interface.
I assume my fixed pc uses the
eth0 network interface because when I did
ifconfig from there it did not display
eth0. What is strange though is that the
HWaddr displayed next to
eth0 from my fixed computer is different from the
HWaddr next to
eth0 when I do
ifconfig on my laptop.
This is on my home network. There is a gateway which is connected to dsl. It connects to 1 wireless transceiver device and 2 fixed computers. At the moment of me doing ifconfig one fixed computer was connected to the internet. And one(my laptop) computer was accessing wireless internet.
