## Second network card
 
SheevaPlug has only one network card so you have to use a USB network adapter for the second NIC. A "AX88772A Fast Ethernet USB Adapter" should work out of the box:
 
```
`Bus 002 Device 003: ID 0b95:772a ASIX Electronics Corp. AX88772A Fast Ethernet`

```
 
 
## U-Boot
The SheevaPlug uses u-boot as bootloader. I recommend to update the u-boot to DENX u-boot first, see: [](https://www.newit.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=2835.0)

## U-Boot configuration
Here is a configuration that try to boot IPFire from external SD first. Copy the file to the clipboard, connect to the uart of the SheevaPlug (with PuTTY or `screen /dev/ttyUSB0 115200`):
