Network card works only when the second card is disabled

Started by Sylvain

Hello,
I have two network cards on my computer but when I want to set the network that i want to follow, I have a problem: I selected "only networks below", the 2 MAC addresses of my 2 cards are visible, only one is green, but the 2 cards are activated and used. Of course, if I select the grayed one, Networx does not work and vice versa. If I disable the network card whose MAC address is green, the gray turn to green and becomes operational.

You can imagine that if I write in this forum, it means that I would like to set on Networx with the gray one, without disabling my second card.

thanks a lot for your advices

Those MAC addresses are not the MAC addresses of the cards. They are the MAC addresses of the default gateway to which the PC is connected.

As far as I remember, in this feature NetWorx recognises only one connection. Can't you just tick both networks? Then NetWorx would be active no matter which one is connected.
Sorry, I wrote a small error: the MAC addresses are those of the two gateways I'm using.
One card is connected to a gateway, and the other card is connected to the other gateway. Both cards are activated, and I'm using the two networks in the same time. But i would to log only one network, the grayed one...

I can tick the one I want, but if it's the gray one, the Networx's thumbnail turn to gray too. I don't understand why the two networks are working but only one is available.
OK, maybe Networx works with only one network at a time. In this case, how can I choose the one I want?

I guess simply allow NetWorx to monitor all networks under the Networks button:

Then choose the network adapter under Monitored interfaces connected to the network you want to monitor:
