Well from my understanding your NIC should have been setup automatically during install. Can you post if your NIC card is built into your motherboard or are you using a external PCI NIC card and let us know what brand / model it is?

I think we will definetly need more information before we can determine where the problem lies.

As for off the head question, During your Install do you remember seeing anything about your NIC card being installed and being prompted with some information about it? When I installed Fedora Core 5 I was prompted to select which NIC I wanted to be active everytime I turned my machine on.

Good luck!
