Description of problem:
I just upgraded from RedHat 7.1 to RedHat 7.3 and I have a static IP address
setup on my only NIC card in the box. During boot, the NIC shows up and gets
an OK when it goes past it. However when I log in, and try to ping anything it
says the network is unreachable. I've tested the cable, the hub with my laptop
and everything is good. The problem occurs either at the card or in the
software. (The card was functioning just fine when using 7.1).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: ifconfig eth0 shows that the interface is up, and the GUI
network configuration tools says that the network is active. The default
gateway is set according to the route and netstat -rn commands. When trying to
ping the gateway, I receive a message stating that the network is unreachable.
Expected Results: The network should have been reachable.
