    Integrated NIC cards


    After I installed Fedora Core 3, everything is fine but my eth connection. I have the computer connected directly to the cable modem, when I try to activate my eth0 NIC I get the message "Determining IP information for eth0... failed" message. I tried setting up my IP address static and it did not work either. I typed the command ifconfig on command line and there is no problem with my NIC. I have a DELL laptop with a Broadcom NIC. Any suggestions?

    you can try as root: dhclient eth0 or dhcpcd eth0

    if this doesn't work you might need to add support in your kernel for your nic. Usually with a distro like fedora everything is pretty much selected so this probably isn't your problem. I think fedora has a network configuration gui right in the toolbar somewhere try that. I'm sure exactly but just search around the toolbar that is the equivalent to the start menu of M$
    All right, brain. You don't like me and I don't like you, but let's just do this and I can get back to killing you with beer. All New Users Read This!!! If you have a grub problem please look at GRUB MANUAL

    Integrated NIC Cards

    I am running a Dell Latitude 600. None of the dhclient packages that have come after dhclient-3.0.1-30_FC3 work on my computer, i.e., I can't get an IP address. The dhcliient package referenced in the last sentence does work.

    Found the solution. See
    I removed the GATEWAY reference and now it works.
