Unhappy Cannot access the internet since installing Fedora


Hello,

I just installed Fedora but now I cannot access the internet. I was able to with Redhat 9 and Windows 2000 so it is not a problem with the network card or cable.

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am new to Linux... keen to learn though

Cheers,
T

Thanks for the reply but I am very new to Linux so the advice below is greek to me...

********************
Check the content of
/etc/resolv.conf
Check the output of
ifconfig -a
and
route
********************

All I know is that when it boots up I get a failed message for the ethernet device. I went to the network configuration panel and I can see the card but it is Inactive. I tried to activate it but it gives me an error message and saya check cable. I have checked the cable it is fine!

Is there a link light on the card? Is it lit? Is the link light lit at the other end? (cable modem etc)
What kind of card is it? Under the hardware tab is it detected properly?

It almost sounds like a driver issue.

I had this issue and I think it is a known one if you are using a 3Com NIC card. There is a problem using kudzu with 3Com cards in some instances.

If you go to the System Services dialog, uncheck kudzu, save and reboot, your NIC card may come up.

Worked for me anyhow.

Hmmm - I wish that were true for me too.....

My 3Com NIC didn't come up until I made the change I referred to above. Here's the reference to the bug and the fix from this forum.

and here's the Bugzilla report with the issue. There are actually several fixes in the comments.
