I guess I would ask, what type of nic do you have, is it even recognized by fedora?

As root you can run
Code:
ifup eth0
to bring up an eth0, but if your network card isnt recognized then it aint gonna work.

what does
Code:
lsmod
spit out

I'm fighting a similar issue. the /sbin/ifup eth0 fails (it's trying to get DHCP at the moment, it comes up if I manually assign an IP).
/sbin/lsmod lists my NIC as via_rhine with a size of 20616 and being used by 0.

the /sbin/ifconfig results are too long to type into another computer :-) but they say that eth0 and lo are both running (I can ping the IPs on both but can't get the eth0 to accept dhcp or ping out to another device.)

Hopefully this is similar enough a problem where I can piggyback... I'd hate to barge in so let me know If I should make my own thread for this.

Thanks.

FOLLOWUP: I've gone ahead and opened my own thread on this... sorry for barging in.
