    Question Reset Network Settings

    I moved my Fedora box from our corporate wan to our local ADSL line. I need to reset the network settings. Is there a "ipconfig /release&&ipconfig /renew" command? And how do I verify my network settings will configure themselves?

    I installed Fedora Core 3 while on the WAN so I didn't have to mess with any of the settings. But the WAN proxy messes up yum update (Not under my control, and I could yell 'til blue in the face before anyone would even think of adjusting them). So in order to continue using Fedora I have to move the box from WAN to DSL to WAN in order to do updates. (Fedora is worth it I think)

    I would like to script this whole process so I don't have a lot of time and editing to do every time I want to update.

    If it's not an easy one line command, could you point me in the right search direction? I haven't found anything useful using the seach here or google.

    So I found what the settings are for the DSL side.
    And that is what Fedora is grabbing.
    But I still can't connect to the internet.

    The "ipconfig" command would be "#service network stop" and "#service network start".
    To verify your settings, open the applications -> system settings -> network utility or from the terminal #system-config-network.
