Broadcom 5700 NIC on Test 3



All,

I have an IBM G40 laptop with a Broadcom 5700 Gigabit
NIC. Under RH 9 it was properly identified and worked
fine. I did a fresh install of Fedora2 Test3 this
morning. Now the NIC is identified as a 5900 and does
not function. There are no related errors in
/var/log/messages. It will not pick up a DHCP lease.
When I set the IP manually I cannot ping the gateway
or any other system in the local network, DNS does not
work either.

I went to Boadcom's site and downloaded the latest
driver and built it from source. When I tried to
insmod bcm5700.o I got an "Invalid Module" error.

Any thoughts or suggestions on this? Or additional
debugging steps I can take.

Thanks,

--Chris
