Something strange is going on ... you are not unique -- 

I have FC2 test1 installed a three systems but on one of them it is operating 
as you describe -- NIC recognized but nothing in or out.  I even tried 
another NIC on that system and it worked the same.  These same NICs work fine

screwed up (tulip and r8169 in my case) while others work fine (sk98lin and 

I would be interested in comments from others using any of the above drivers
