Persistant determing device IP address message


Suddenly, yesterday my cable DHCP eth0 connection dropped without complaint on my FC4 host. Since then, I have not been successful connecting from the eth0 interface. I have:

1. changed NIC cards
2. changed PCI slots
3. swapped NIC cards
4. cleared /var/lib/dhcp leases
5. manually used ifconfig to set the IP address
6. manually added routes to cable provider's DHCP server
7. used tcpdump and see arps
8. turned firewall off

I know that:

1. the card works, I moved it to another machine and it worked.
2. the cable provider DHCP server will provide an IP address. I used a Window PC, connected it to the cable modem and it received an IP address.
3. eth0 on FC4 will accept DHCPOFFER from the Window PC configured to share connection.

The "Determing IP address" message persists. What am I missing?

Regards

I solved the complaint by deleting the eth0 interface, rebooting, and then adding eth0. The only observable difference when it worked again was the netmask from the cable provider's DHCP server.

Perhaps, somewhere in between changing NIC and PCI slots an old MAC and/or hardware configuration remained.

Thanks for the response
