tofu, sry I missed this first time around...
Did it majickally fix itself, by any chance? Sometimes you have to power-cycle your cable modem to have it assign another address....
If you could give me an actual error or something, that would be cool.
Also try running:
to see if the card is seeing that it is connected to the hub/switch/modem.
Bugzilla may have some info for you:https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/sh ... ?id=119965
Some confusion in the bug report about whether it's a 509 or 905 though. ;)
This may help (run as root):
/sbin/chkconfig --del kudzu
kudzu is the thing that says "Detecting new hardware..." or somesuch. It takes effect after reboot.
/sbin/chkconfig --add kudzu
Also, it may be that the module isn't loading. Try this (as root):
/sbin/service network restart
You may need to run `redhat-config-network` to set up dhcp if it isn't already.
Lemme know how it goes, and error reports are helpful.
P.S. All of the redhat-config-* programs are renamed system-config-* in FC2/BLAG20000.
