I have recently upgraded to FC4. I lost my internet connection ever since. Maybe it was just coincidence, that a problem was about to happen and i upgraded to FC4 ...I am able to connect from windows side of the same machine. I am using a ADSL connection with Huawei's SmartAX MT800 modem. The connection is like this:
A telephone line goes to a ADSL Splitter & a telephone line from adsl side goes to modem & another line goes to the telephone. A cat5 cable from modem goes to ethernet port of computer. During boot up the line says
Bringing up ppp0 [ok]
but there is also a another message which says (which i don't think is usefull but i include it anyway):
Bringing up eth0 [failed] Check cabel?
but this is the message i used to get even during FC3. I was able to connect then. The system-config-network says ppp0 as active.
But when i enter
I heard SELinux is causing lots of problem, so i ran dmesg. The result is
SELinux:Sarting in permissive mode
selinux_register_securrity:Registering secondary module
SELinux: Registering net filter hooks
SELinux: Disable at runtime
SELinux:Unregistering netfiler hooks
i checked if audit contains any usefull message (b'cos of message from FC4 Release notes)
#ls -l /var/log/audit/
I tried disabling seliinux from affeccting dhcp by:
setsebool:SELinux is disabled
I got this command through google search. I haven't configured my system to use its own dhcp.
How do i connect to the internet.
