Maybe the wrong driver is loaded, or Fedora 13 is using the wrong software to try and connect.

It may be more suitable for networking (or wireless...if its wireless, of course) or laptop and notebook, but lets just try this for the minute, and then the best way to progress might become apparent:

Are you using wired or wireless? if you are using wireless do you have the opportunity to plug a wire in and see if that works?

Do you know whether you are using ifup/ifdown or networkmanager or wicd?

Can you post the output from ifconfig?
