Hi,

Could you check if they are detected and handled by the kernel? You can check it by listing the files in /sys/class/net/ or with ifconfig command.

Could you try with "ifconfig -a" and "ls /sys/class/net"?

Then the operative system is not detecting the cards, you should check if they are supported by Linux and if the drivers are correctly installed. Zentyal cannot do anything if the hardware is not correctly configured.
