Question Reinstalling Fedora Networking


How can I completely uninstall Fedora Networking and reinstall it as of the day I built it?
I am having an issue with Fedora and the network settings. I had installed Fedora on a system with 2 NICS. Then I removed the hard drive and sent to another site to be installed in the same identical system. I encountered an issue because networking was stating that it was expecting a different MAC address. I then tried resetting both NICS to DHCP and restarting the service. Still no luck. I then looked in the /etc/udev/ fr the specific rules and remarked out the old MACS. still no luck. Any thoughts or suggesstions. I would live to just be able to start fresh on the networking.

Can't remember the exact location of them off the top of my head, but under /etc (I *THINK* it's /etc/sysconfig/network), you'll find files like ifcfg-eth_s0_0 (replace the eth_s0_0 with your own device name). The MAC and other settings are in those files. Try to edit them, and remove what you don't want. Or move/copy them to a different location, and re-run the network config.

Don't know if you're using Networkmanager or not (usually runs by default), but try this:

- sudo /etc/init.d/NetworkManager stop
- sudo system-config-network

Then configure things as you want. You MAY be able to get away with a "networkmanager start", or "network restart", but may have to reboot.
