I am using the PCI lan card as i have a problem with the onboard LAN card. The onboard card is recognised as eth1 and the PCI card as eth0.The matter of

You can open a terminal, and use lspci or lsmod to find the specified module number for the hardware you want to disable. Once you do that you can open the blacklist file by typing this into terminal: sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist. Once you have the file open for editing you can add the module you wish to blacklist to the list. Hope this helps.
