Problem updating to latest Kernal using up2date, internet stops working

I used up2date to get the latest kernal version which was 2.6.12-1.1381_FC3 , but when I rebooted with this, I had no internet functionality. If I choose the old one, 2.6.10-1.766_FC3, then internet works. Is this a common problem? Thanks.

Strange.. Actually the new kernel usually should have the old kernel configuration. Try this:

Open a terminal and type
You'll be asked for your root password at this point. Then type
yum update kernel
(while using the old kernel, not the newer one).

And actually it's weird, the latest kernel version is 2.6.15, 2.6.12 is definitely outdated.

Did not work

Hello Ahmed.

I typed "yum update kernal", and it went through it's process, but at the end it stated:

"Could not find update match for Kernal"
"No packages marked for update/obseletion"

Then I tried up2date again, and it had no updates either.
