NVIDIA nForce network not obtaining IP..


I just installed Fedora Core 3; I have an ASUS A7N8X mobo; with a NVidia ethernet controller; the connection works fine in Windows XP. While booting into Fedora it fails on obtaining network config for eth0. I also have a gigabit ethernet controller but it's not used right now.

Fedora appears to see both controllers and the correct names are displayed. However are listed as inactive. When I check an ifconfig; the device is listed but there is no IP address listed.

Any thoughts on how to activate my network connection with Fedora?

Thanks.

well some outputs maybe helpful here, like
`ifconfig eth0 `
`cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0`
`lsmod`
`route -n`
`iptables -L`

that will be a nice start

you can try clearing the iptables firewall
`iptables -F`

and then try giving it an ip manually
I am not sure what your net address is but here is an example

`ifconfig eth1 192.168.1.15 255.255.255.0 up`

add your gateway after that

`route add default gw 192.168.1.1`

and then try to ping a pingable address like yahoo (66.94.230.48)

dhclient eth1

that will do it if not.
