Reboot and no internet

I just 'yum'ed for the latest Fedora Core 2 updates and when I rebooted, my linux system can no longer see the internet.

I double checked iptables to be sure they were off.

I double checked my dns servers in resolv.conf and thay are still set and all valid

My windows machine on the same network works fine. From the Linux box, I cannot even ping the outside internet ... it says 'network unreachable. '

What else can I check?

If you use DHCP try from root dhcpcd eth0.
then ping -c 3

Nope. static IP. Nothing has changed except for a reboot with some upgrades. Can't ping static IPs either

You might want to check your routing table and make sure that your default route is correct

Seems that the problem lies somewhere here itself.
Shouldn't your default gateway point to some proxy server on your network ?
I guess your system administrator should be able to point you in the right direction.

maybe try

route add default gw 123.123.321.1

if your static ip is 123.123.321.321

then your gateway is 123.123.321.1
(most likely)

if you know your static ip

then try this

ip eth0 up
