Have a broadcom 5782 NIC, worked great with Windows OS, Fedora 16 and older, CentOS 6.2 and older, etc. But in Fedora 17, the BCM5782 NIC can not bind to TCP/IP, never acquires IP address? Anyone run into this issue?

A bit more information, static IP assignment in ifcfg-* file for BCM5782 NIC works. Explicit disable of NetworkManager, enable of network service, no impact. Consistent error in /var/log/messages... NODHCPOFFERS received. Yet, link state it good. Disabled SELinux, and iptables and ip6tables services, no benefit. DHCP client never seems to receive response, yet know for fact DHCP server is alive and well, only Fedora 17 having issue. Did full update of Fedora 17, under static IP, then re-established DHCP configuration in ifcfg-* file for BCM5782 NIC. No change. This issue almost seems regressive, very old issue was similar.
