1. What is the output of "ifconfig"?

2. Are you on a lan? or directly hooked up to a cable/dsl modem?

I think you mean you have a cable connection. A lan means you have a
router or some other dhcp server between your comp and your cable modem. Also your working ifconfig shows an ip which is not a "class c" address this tells me you are probably hooked up to a cable modem.

You don't need to restart to linux to retry the dhcp connection all you have to do is this:

/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 restart



First power cycle your cable modem. Meaning unplug it for 10-15seconds then plug it back in. Make sure all the lights on the
cable modem are ok. Usually theres a status/link light or something.

Wait for the modem to restart then try :
/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 restart.

If you have another computer you can try testing it with the cable modem to see if it has a problem connecting as well.

Can you please post the output of lspci and lsmod?
Also, if the machine is NOT a notebook and you're not
using any pcmcia devices, I'd disable their lookup;
there were numerous problems with varied hardware
caused by PCMCIA drivers (chmod a-x /etc/rc.d/rc.pcmcia).


Cheers,
Tink
