repairing a network, fedora 13, with linksy router

Hi I am a newbie. I have a guru who is otherwise disposed running/developing his own business.

Something happened to my router, and I repaired the connection to the linksys and two laptops,

both xp systems. I can't seem to reconnect to the linux fedora 13 system. Help?

    Check whether you have ethernet card active and ip assigned to it.

    check whether you get output for the following commands.


    route -nr

    Is the Linksys providing DHCP services?

    Is your network card a PCI card, a USB adapter, or something on the motherboard?
    Can you issue the command ' lshw | grep -A12 "network" ' to help us see more information about your network card ...
  • In response to the requested info:
    ifconfig response:

    and more

    Does this tell you what you need to know?

    I guess we'd like to see the errors (on the RX and TX packets lines) when running ifconfig, my output looks like this:

    eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:22:19:E9:C9:C1
    inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
    inet6 addr: fe80::222:19ff:fee9:c9c1/64 Scope:Link

    and from route:

    [[email protected] ~]$ route -n

    Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface U 1 0 0 eth0 UG 0 0 0 eth0

    Can you copy and paste the results?
