I have a new Dell 740n system with the following configuration.
AMD Athalon X2-5000+
NVIDIA 4 chip set
150 GB SATA disk
Onboard Broadcom 57XX NIC
I have a default FC 5 X64 installation with the kernel configuration of “noapic” and the computer boots ok, and is stable. But I have no network.
Computer is one of 4 on a switch, the other three are able to receive DHCP address no problems
Installed Intel pro/1000 MT NIC, configured for DHCP…No Address received
Changed to Static IP…no outbound traffic
Changed back to DHCP… can not contact DHCP server
Changed to direct connected (not from Stitch) network cable …no outbound traffic
Used a cross over cable connected to known working computer …no outbound traffic
Reinstalled the OS, thinking I had messed something up…still no network
Changed NIC’s thinking that maybe the NIC was bad…still no network
Searched Google for a fix…can not seem to find any thing.
Dose anyone have any ideas?
