Fedora 10 internet connection problem

I have a brand new Fedora 10 install that cannot seem to connect to the internet.

I have tried dhcp and manual configuration. Same results.

The rest of the network has 3 Mac OS X boxes that are runnig perfectly.

I can ping my Linksys router and bring it's admin panel up on all machines.

The DNS servers I set on the Fedora Machine are the same as those on the Mac systems


Fedora network settings
Default gateway:
Subnet mask:
DNS: and
IP: (manually set)

I can ping the Linux machine from the other machines

The Macs are all using dhcp one set to
the other to
same gateway, same dns, same subnet mask

pinging dns servers or any other internet IP does not work

When I bring up ifconfig it shows an inet address of

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

What is the output of
ifconfig -a
Does it show anything like eth0 or ethX where X is a number?
