New Install, DHCP shuts down ETH0


I just got finished loading Fedora 7 onto a Dell Optiplex GX620 with a Broadcom NetXtreme BCM5751 Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express card.

This box ran fine with FC6 on it.

Now, when booting, and when I try to bring up ETH0, I get...

Determining IP information for eth0... failed; no link present. Check cable?

I've checked the cable, it is fine, the card is fine too. I have a light on the card, until the failure, then all lights on the NIC go out.

I've seen this before, but for the life of me can't remember the solution. I thought it had something to do with IPv6.

I am inside a corporate firewall and must use DHCP to connect. I tested things by assigning an IP address, and was able to get the card up, but I cannot operate like that, I was only able to do it as a test.

There is also a virbr0 when I do an ifconfig -a

Has anyone solved this problem, and remembers how they did it?

Thanks a ton!!!

I'm not sure that is the same problem. Mine never comes up via DHCP, it just shuts off.
