Smile Configuring NIC Card in FC2


Hey, I'm new to Fedora. I just got a new NIC card (10/100Maps fast Ethevnet Adapter) and I was wondering how I'd configure it so I can get online.
I'm running FC2 on my computer.
Any advice?

From command line or GUI?

FC2 is getting a bit old, so it may or may not work with your card

from command line try system-config-network and follow the instructions

You should be able to select the NIC, then hit enter to allow you to set the IP, etc

Here's what I see on one of my boxes
