can't activate network interface


i did a fresh install of RH9
and I can't get ip address fro DHCP server. I checked the cable and port on the switch, and RH45 port on the wall, they all fine.
when i issue service network restart it says determining IP information for eth0 failed.

and activating eth0 at network device control also failed.

what is wrong? I even manually add an IP to it still has no impact.

any ideas?

are you able to specify a static ip?
If not then the card is problem; either drivers or harware failure

i reinstalled the driver, add an ip address to it.
ifconfig shows:
eth0 linkecap:ethernet hwaddr xxxxxxxxxxxx
inet addr:192.168.0.186 bcast:192.168.0.255 mask:255.255.255.0
...
route shows:
192.168.0.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
169.254.0.0 * 255.255.0.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
127.0.0.0 * 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 lo

ping 192.168.0.1
destination unreachable

i double checked the cable and verified the cable is fine.

thanks

# redhat-config-securitylevel
