Fedora9 Compaq 6720 Network Problem


Hi all,
I have a new HP 6720S laptop on which i am trying to install Fedora 9. Installation is smooth with no problem, however I have hit a roadblock with network configuration. Simply put, ther eis no network connectivity, neither from ethernet nor from wireless. i was hoping to make either of these work and configured eth0 only. However,i entered all appropriate values and tried to ping another computer on the same subnet; ping failed. route displays the correct gateway. dmesg shows the following error(amongst others)
ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth0 link is not ready.
However, the ethernet port is fine. I had tried ubuntu on it and network was ok.
Can someone please help?
i installed Fedora 9, 64 bit.
Thanks
Krishnan

Are you using NetworkManager? Try disabling it to see if you can at least get the wired working:

I disabled the network manager but that does not do the trick. BIOS upgrade helps. For getting the BIOS upgrade, please see the thread http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=189769here
