    "device is unmanaged" for eth0 and wlan0


    Here's what I did:
    1. installed fedora 10.
    2. booted up
    3. set a static ip through the gui under System->Administration->Network
    192.168.2.10 (IP)
    255.255.255.0 (netmask)
    192.168.2.1 (gateway. this is the ip of my router.)

    The DNS is set to 192.168.2.1 as the DNS ips are on my router. It works in
    Windows fine.
    4. checked ifconfig to see if it worked. it didn't.
    5. rebooted

    Here's the result:
    -when I click the little icon in the top right corner of the screen where the wireless networks are normally listed, it says "device is unmanaged" under both the wired and wireless interfaces.
    -when I go into the network gui again and try to activate wlan0 I get this error:
    "Error for wireless request "Set Bit Rate" (8B20) :
    SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument."

    I can't access the internet.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Richard

    It is usually best to have the router assign the IP address.

    You can have the router permanently assign a specific IP address to a specific network card. It will identify it by the MAC address. You then set the PC to get it's IP address using DHCP.
