I have seen the same thing. BugZilla time?

I have a Xircom CardBus Ethernet 10/100+Modem 56 (RBEM56G-100) and a
Dell Inspiron 4150.  With Null, I won't do DHCP, but if I statically
configure an IP address it works.

I don't think it is a Dell issue, I suspect a xircom_cb issue.

Sounds more like a driver issue with that card driver.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
