I am unable to get my network card to obtain an IP address from my router. My wireless can connect and obtain an IP address without a problem. I've tested the network cable on another system and there are no problems.
I ran a network sniifer while my linux box was trying to obtain the IP address and found that the router was getting the request (router DHCP table reflects this as well) and was even giving a response. It looks like my linux box just isn't receiving that response.
I have turned off the firewall and SELinux as well as flushed the iptables and the dhclient still times out.
Any help would be appreciated.
