    Are you connecting to a local network (LAN), or to your ISP directly?

    If you are connecting to your LAN, and you have a router, it probably assigns the IP via DHCP, so you'd just need to tell Fedora to use DHCP to assign IP. The same goes for if you are connecting to an ISP.

    If you have your own LAN configuration, without a fancy router (ie: just a hub, etc), you'll need to provide more information on your configuration.

    3 Rules:
    1) "It doesn't work..." is simply not useful information.
    2) Don't cross post!
    3) If you are asking for help, start by telling us your distro/os and version.

    to check your ip type
    ifconfig eth0
    then add it to the /etc/hosts file to look like :
    <personal ip> <hostname> <alias>
    all these if you don't want to use dhcp
