Fedora 2 - Can't Get on LAN
Date: Thu, 23 Sep 2004 21:24:44 GMT
I'm hoping someone can help me. I just installed Fedora Core 2 on a system
that was running Red Hat 9. The problem is that I can't get on my LAN. The
NIC is a Intel Ethernet Pro 100. Here's what I've tried:
1. cable and NIC adapter are ok (ran fine under Red Hat 9)
2. lspci -v shows "Ethernet controller: Intel Corp. 82557/8/9 [Ethernet Pro
Subsystem: Intel Corp. 82559 Fast Ethernet LAN on
3. I tried both a DHCP setup and a static IP. I used the Network device
control app under System Tools. I have the gateway and netmask setup
4. ifconfig shows that everything is setup on eth0, buth there is no data
moving RX bytes = 0 and TX bytes = 0
5. Ran ethereal on another system on the same hub as the Fedora box. It
showed that ARP packets from the Fedora box were being sent and received
6. I can ping the loopback adapter and when assigned a static IP I can ping
the Fedora box from the Fedora box
7 Here's the output from route:
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use
10.1.249.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0
169.254.0.0 * 255.255.0.0 U 0 0
127.0.0.1 * 255.0.0.0 U 0 0
default * 0.0.0.0 UG 0
0 0 eth0
The only conclusion I've left with is that the Fedora box Network stack is
somehow disconnected from Ethernet adapter. Any help would be greatly
