ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth0: link is not ready


Hi all,

My Fedora 9 machine has 2 NICs, one onboard NIC (eth0) and one D-Link DFE-538TX (eth1).
The onboard NIC failed and I disabled it on BIOS and add a new NIC D-Link DGE-530T. When I reboot the machine, ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth0: link is not ready is dsiplayed on command dmesg:

> dmesg

skge eth0: enabling interface
ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth0: link is not ready
eth1: link up, 10Mbps, half-duplex, lpa 0x0000
eth1: no IPv6 routers present

> cat /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules

Any idea what is the meaning to this messages ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP) in dmesg.
The eth0 is connected to local LAN which I cannot ping to any local machines and the eth1 is connected to internet which I can ping to the internet such as yahoo.com

The problem was caused by the defective network cable.
