I reset it in terminal window as root and that seemed to work. Whats up with that?
If the netmask is really being reset to the gateway IP, it's definitely a bug. On the other hand, you are using an old Fedora version, which means the problem you noticed may have been solved months ago.
Is there some compelling reason why you are not using Fedora 11?
