Hi, I have a small network behind a Netgear RO318 which acts as DHCP server. I was running FC2 and all worked well. I just upgraded to FC4 and now DHCP will give me an IP address but not DNS. There is no /etc/resolv.conf file. (Does DHCP create this file on the fly?) I can ping an IP address 'ping 64.233.167.99', but this fails 'ping google.com'. Here is my /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0:

# Intel Corp.|82557/8/9 [Ethernet Pro 100]
DEVICE=eth0
HWADDR=00:03:47:06:A6:76
ONBOOT=yes
TYPE=Ethernet
USERCTL=no
PEERDNS=no
IPV6INIT=no
BOOTPROTO=dhcp

All other computers on the network have no problem. My Fedora machine is setup as a server so I have no GUI interface.

Thanks
