NIC issues


I'm running Fedora core 6 and I'm unable to access the Internet. At first, I thought this was an IPv6 issue with firefox, so I disabled it on the about:config page. Once I found out that that didn't work, I googled around and did the following:

sudo gedit /etc/sysconfig/network


sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.conf and added the following lines:

alias net-pf-10 off
alias ipv6 off

then rebooted. I initially received an error during bootup regarding an error in my modprobe.conf, line 3 which was the 'alias net-pf-10' line, so I removed it and haven't got an error since, however I'm still unable to access the Internet. My NIC is supposed to activate during startup, but whenever I go to "network" via the gui, it tells me its inactive. When I try to activate it, it fails and gives no detailed info as to why. So I changed it to a static IP and am able to activate it, but still unable to access the net. When its statically set, I try to ping my gateway but it returns a ' destination host unreachable', with the being the address I've statically set my NIC to. Any help would be appreciated. Thanx.

Apparently, if you reimage your HDD from Windows to Linux, you need to reboot your router? Hmm... I'm not sure what the cause is/was, but I've restarted my router and everything is OK. Hope I didn't waste anybody's time.
