I'm running Fedora core 6 and I'm unable to access the Internet. At first, I thought this was an IPv6 issue with firefox, so I disabled it on the about:config page. Once I found out that that didn't work, I googled around and did the following:
sudo gedit /etc/sysconfig/network
sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.conf and added the following lines:
alias net-pf-10 off
alias ipv6 off
then rebooted. I initially received an error during bootup regarding an error in my modprobe.conf, line 3 which was the 'alias net-pf-10' line, so I removed it and haven't got an error since, however I'm still unable to access the Internet. My NIC is supposed to activate during startup, but whenever I go to "network" via the gui, it tells me its inactive. When I try to activate it, it fails and gives no detailed info as to why. So I changed it to a static IP and am able to activate it, but still unable to access the net. When its statically set, I try to ping my gateway but it returns a '192.168.12.100: destination host unreachable', with the 192.168.12.100 being the address I've statically set my NIC to. Any help would be appreciated. Thanx.
