Okay, I'll admit i'm a total newb to linux. I do have a problem that shouldn't be happening (otherwise I doubt it would be a problem! :P )
I don't use DHCP on my network (added lvl of wireless security) I am using a wired network on my FC6 box, and I configured the IP addressing properly.
IP Address: 192.168.1.40
Default Gateway: 192.168.1.2 (I modified it in the router to be such)
DNS 1: 126.96.36.199
DNS 2: 188.8.131.52
and it worked fine. ONCE. Then I rebooted, and tried a fresh install (trying to gain access to the extras repo, still no dice there URL issue, I think it's caused by the lack of network)
Now, with the same config, nothing. No internet, no network connectivity. Nothing.
Again, being new to *nix in general I'm not even sure of the console command that's equivalent to IPCONFIG in windows.
Please oh Please help!
