Routing Question

Hi All,

I'm quite the novice at understand this, so maybe someone can help me.

I have 2 NIC's in my Linux box, and 2 DSL lines going to them. I can
successfully SSH into only one of the IP's. My guess is that it has
something to do with my internal routing table. But since I do not
understand it, I thought maybe someone can tell me what to do.

Here is my routing table:

Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref
Use Iface UG 0 0
0 eth0 U 0 0
0 eth0 UG 0 0
0 eth0 U 0 0
0 eth0 UG 0 0
0 eth1 U 0 0
0 eth1 UG 0 0
0 eth1 U 0 0
0 lo

Notice that there is no line for eth1 that matches this: U 0 0
0 eth1

That may be my problem? But when I attempt to add that route here is
what happens:

route add -net netmask gw eth1
SIOCADDRT: Invalid argument

I'm really lost here. I need to be able to SSH into either NIC....

Any help would be appreciated.
