I'm new to Linux overall and have recently installed Fedora 7 after trying several other distros. If I follow the startup process I see that eth0 starts up. If I look at my router/firewall's logs, I can see the linux host being assigned an IP address. Once everything is started, however, the linux box is unable to resolve anything via DNS, nor is is able to ping even the router by IP address. I haven't experienced this issue with any other distributions and have tested the ports and cables on known good PCs. This is a bit perplexing to me. I don't see any logs on the firewall that suggest the linux box is being denied access in any way.
Any suggestions on logs I might read or troubleshooting steps I might try on the Linux side?
