Not getting a default route


Recently, my Fedora Core 4 configured laptop stopped getting a default route via dhcp. I had this same problem back about 6 months ago with my FC3 setup (see: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=304307). Since then I reloaded the box with FC4 and everything was fine until this past week when again, it stopped accepting a default gateway. I know it's an issue with my linux because I have a VMWare session running Win2K and it boots up and gets a default gateway just fine from the same dhcp server. I can manually add the default route (route add default gw x.x.x.x) and everything is fine until the next reboot.

Any suggestions? I take this machine to customers to do presentations and it's embarrassing to keep asking them what their default gateway is before we can begin our meeting.

After you boot and the gateway is not set look into /var/log/messages. Look if you can find something that may be related to the problem. If unsure, post last fragment of the log.

I am having the exact same problem. It seems like everything was working fine until I did 'yum -y update'. I have since attempted to recomplile and reload ieee80211 and the ipw2200 driver. No luck. I am also using FC4.
