Network Card Problems

Network Card Problems

I just installed a firewire card. Since then Pro has refused to recognize my
Ethernet card. The firewire installed with no problems and runs fine. When I
went to run Pro was when I ran into problems. I checked to make sure that
the NIC was installed. It is and I can access the network and internet fine.
I checked the MAC address against the one listed in the license file. Again
they match. When I ran PTC Setup I noticed that the PTCHostID is different
from that of the NIC. It has the standard MAC address format but didn't
match the NIC. Double-clicking on the PTCHostID shows that FlexLM sees the
MAC of the NIC but Pro doesn't. I disabled the firewire card and Pro now
tells me that no network card is installed. Enabling the firewire doesn't
get Pro to run but it recognizes the firewire as a network card and PTC
Setup returns the same PTCHostID as I toggle the firewire on and off. Any
ideas on how to get pro to look at the right card? I could get new codes but
I would like to avoid this in the future. It would be a royal pain to have
to get new codes every time I add or remove a card.

TIA
