This is not really a router issue but rather a NIC issue. I am setting up a Linux Fedora Box and can't seem to get connectivity . I can ping the 127.0.0.1 address but not the host address or gateway I get a network is unreachable response. I have tried 3 different NIC cards along with the internal nic device that was on the motherboard. The card wiil be recognized when I boot up the system and shows a green connection light from the switch I am connected to. I have use the same line that was connceted to another server that was live so I know it works. The message I receive when i try to configure the network is 3c59x device eth0 does not seem to be present, delaying the initialization. Any suggestions? Thnaks in advance.
