    Internet connection = fail


    I just got FC8 running on a Nec VersaPro VAJ10 laptop.....

    I did a network install from an FTP, and got it all up and running, updated packages, and goofed around,a nd then shutdown.

    I rebooted later, without the network cable inserted.........but later plugged it in. The internet no longer works!

    I have tried numerous fixes but got nothing.......

    the settings show that the domain name is localhost.localdomain I am plugged into a router.



    I am just confused as to why it would suddenly cease working....

    You can re-configure it with, (from the command line as su):
    Code:
    system-config-network
    Check to make sure the little box that says "start device at boot" or something similar to that is checked.

    when linux boots up it says "starting eth0" [FAILED].... so I think it is starting at boot, or at least attempting to

    ill try the system-config-network in a few minutes

    EDIT: LOL. booted up and the internet works now.
