First problem encountered...

After a flawless installation of Fedora Linux I was glad and a little surprised too, to see that everything worked just fine...

Well, I played around with it for about half an hour, checking out the two GUIs provided while downloading the 35 needed updates, including new kernel 2.4.2.....

that was about all the time my happiness lasted...right after I rebooted (after having finished updating) I had no connection to the Internet anymore...

My first thought was to search for the reason why, but then I thought being a novice with Linux this would definitely take more time than re-installing it so I did it again...AGAIN no problem whatsoever (it almost worries me, cause I've heard of so many people having problems with the notorious installation routine)...updating was not a problem either, this time though I updated the kernel first, rebooted and saw that internet connection was still up...

Then I went on updating the rest 35 updates (during installation I chose to Install Fedora as a Workstation, without it's developer's tools though, because it contains administrator's tools as well), rebooted and again, my internet connection was gone...

It has to be some faulty update, right? Does anyone have any idea which one??

right now i am re-installing Fedora for the 5th time within some hours just for the heck of it and what I realise is that it takes me far less time installing from scratch than looking for what causes my internet connection go down..

Btw, I've reached a point where I only need 21 minutes to reinstall it from scratch, so noone can say than Linux is this complicated, when it comes to installing least not this version!!

I just hope I'll find the reason why I lost internet connection, with your help, or else I will not update any longer, except for the kernel.

Thanks for any help in advance.. this forun is just great!
