Connected, but can't see router, internet


Basically, I have a fedora core 2 connected via an integrated intel NIC to my Linksys befsr41 router. It used to work on Mandrake. I've already disabled IPv6 and uninstalled iptables. Pinging anything except for localhost is useless. Tried DHCP and it doesnt work. Tried static ip with dhcpc and nutthin.

Im providing the following information based on questions asked regarding similar situations, but have found the solutions to not have worked for me. I've been brooding over this issue for 2 whole days already. Please assist, thanks in advance.

Does your system's IP match the subnet the LinkSys Router's LAN port is on?

Yes, 255.255.255.0

I presume /etc/modprobe.conf, because dont have a modules.conf
When I do that, it doesn't even recognise the presence of the card and doesn't load the module at all.
