Description of problem:
I downloaded and installed FC4-X86_64 version. I have a gigabyte motherboard, GA-K8NSC-939 nForce3 250Gb chipset, with on board network adapter. The install was perfect , but during the reboot the network adapter was not found. Which is strange, I just download the iso files and chatted on the network, while using my FC4-i386 version.
While troubleshooting I noticed that the lights on my cisco switch was not on to my computer. Checked the network adapter on the computer and the lights were off. Checked the cables, nothing. I hooked up my old WinXP drive and booted. Still no network connection.
I went to Wallyworld this morning and bought a 10/100 PCI network adapter. I am up and running right now with my old WinXP. I switch back to the on board NA and it is not working.
There is a chance that the hardware failed but the motherboard is less than a month old.
