Sounds like you are running NetworkManager. For a server box, the
simplest fix is usually:

chkconfig --level 2345 NetworkManager off
chkconfig --level 2345 network on
reboot

That switches to the traditional "network" service rather than
NetworkManager (which appears to have been designed exclusively
to flit from one wi-fi hotspot to another and will be another
two or three releases getting itself backward compatible with
server type usage :-).
