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