Description Eric Princen 2004-05-14 16:55:54 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)

Description of problem:
If I connect to my network with a static IP (dhcp doesn't work because
of the problem,) I can use tcpdump -n to see traffic on the network,
but no matter what I do, my laptop doesn't actually transmit anything.
This is a STOCK Fedora 1 installation on an eMachines M6809 (athlon
64, but using the i386 FCore 1,) using the eth0 adapter which is a VIA
VT6102 [Rhine-II] rev 74. The unit also has Broadcom 802.11g
(BCM94306) rev 3 built in, and I've tried using it with ndiswrapper
with limited success (no network traffic at all, but driver
communications/parameter setting.)

I'm more than happy to try stuff out and try Core 2 if I can get a
copy soon. I'm almost completely booked from next monday until the
second weekend in June. I'd like to have functioning networking by then.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start laptop
2. ifup eth0
3. tcpdump -n
4. ping (gateway) in new console

Actual Results:  All I see that references my laptop is an occasional
arp request for There are never any replies.

Expected Results:  The pings would show up on tcpdump. At minimum, my
arp requests would get responses.
