Cannot Establish IP
Hello I recently installed Fedora Core 7 on one of my pcs and I am unable to connect to the interenet.
It seems that OS does reconize the card because when i go into networking i see it there. I try activating it but it does not work.
profile checked status inactivedeviceetho type ethernet
::1 name localhost.6.localocaldor aliases localhost6
admtek nc100 Everywhere Fast Ethernet
On the ethernet Card:
Linksys Etherfast 10/100 Lan Card Model LNE100tx version 5.1 I have also tryed 3 other cards and i get the same thing....
Can you post the output of:
Here is the code.
Here is the code when i type in /sbin/ifconfig in the terminal window. Thank you for helping.!

is your eth0 device activated if not bring it up using
from the above results you posted back, their is no IP address assighed to your ethernet card.
/sbin/ifconfig eth0 up
use system-config-network to assigh ip address to your card
When i go to System-Admin-Network and try to activate etho it fails. When i go to edit, the following are checked on all tabs.
1. Activate device when pc starts
2. Automatically obtain ip adress setting with DHCP
3. Automatically obbtain DNS information from porivder
4. Bind to mac address
I also tryed typing in /sbin/ifconfig etho up but that didnt do anything, but when i do /sbin/ifconfig etho activate it gives me a message that "Activate: Host name lookup failure"
If it helps i am on Charter Communications. Thanks for the inputs guys, i appreicate it.
See if you can get connected with a static ip. The address you choose should be of similar numeric value as what is shown in your router. For instance, Linksys routers run 192.168.1.101-192.168.1.110, and Netgear runs 192.168.0.1-192.168.0.10. To attempt static ip do (for instance):
Are you sure dhcp is "on" in your router?
/sbin/ifconfig eth0 inet 192.168.1.105
I do not have a router in place. But i did try the static ip configuration with the ip that i get from this pc. But that did not work, i even tryed restarting after doing that but still no go.
I also did dmesg |grep eth0 and i got the following information:
Thanks once again guys, appreciate you help!
[root@localhost ~]# dmesg |grep eth0
eth0: ADMtek Comet rev 17 at MMIO 0x41000000, 00:0C:41:26:06:4D, IRQ 3.
eth0: Setting full-duplex based on MII#1 link partner capability of 45e1.
eth0: no IPv6 routers present
I assumed you had a router since you said "one of my pc's." Explain your situation a little bit. How is it that you have more than one pc, yet no router? Are your computers on different modems or services? Or are you switching the cable from one to the other when you are trying to get a connection from the Fedora box?
I have two desktop pcs, one with intel pentium D 2.8 ghz win xp pro, and another one that i have that is running at 750 mhz with fedora. I do not have a router is place because i didnt really need both pcs to be online at the same time. The win xp system is usually the one that i use the most. But recently i wanted to install linux on my old box so i can compile a few programs. So when ever i needed the other box to access the internet I would just switch the cables. The 750mhz machine used to run xp pro on it aswell. Hope it helps... can it be a hardware problem with the desktop itself? I have tryed to reset the bios by taking out the battery and also doing it with the switches on the board... but still no go. Can this be a driver issue? I am lost...Thanks for the help once again....
