Description of problem:
I have RH 8. The model and manufacturer of my ethernet card is RTL 8139 SMC EZ 
Fast Ethernet the card is activated and I can ping my IP. I cannot get onto 
the internet. When I run dhclient eth0 I get a series of 
DHCPDISCOVER on eth0 on 255.255.255.255 
port 67 interval 11 then 14 and so on. 
Then 'No DHCP offers recieved' then 'No working leases in persistent 
databases - sleeping'. 
 

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


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.dhclient eth0 
2.
3.
	

Actual Results:  DHCPDISCOVER on eth0 on 255.255.255.255 
port 67 interval 11 then 14 and so on. 
Then 'No DHCP offers recieved' then 'No working leases in persistent 
databases - sleeping'

Expected Results:  That I get on the Internet

Additional info:

I have been in touch with 'Phillip' in support as this is a new product and I 
have not been able to get on the net since I first installed. It was he who 
suggested that I submit this report and I take that to mean that he can help 
me no further. 
The Ethernet card works fine with Windows XP and I hook up to the server no 
problem. I have spoken to my ISP and they say that although they do not give 
support for RH they know of no reason why I should not be able to hook on to 
the server. My ISP is Blueyonder cable and I get on through a cable modem.

I am not sure who Phillip is. Is he a Red Hat employee.  I believe this is a
setup problem, so you should contact support.
