[This goes vastly OT, I know:]

I am blank astonished that it seems to be impossible to get two
independent NICs picking up their IPs from different networks; or even the
same network, that is.
What is wrong in my understanding, that if I plug 7 NICs and connect them
(or do not connect them) to a DHCP server, that all of them independently
try to get an IP ?
