repairing a network, fedora 13, with linksy router

Link to this post 19 Oct 10

Hi I am a newbie. I have a guru who is otherwise disposed running/developing his own business.
Something happened to my router, and I repaired the connection to the linksys and two laptops,
both xp systems. I can't seem to reconnect to the linux fedora 13 system. Help?

Check whether you have ethernet card active and ip assigned to it.


check whether you get output for the following commands.

ifconfig

route -nr

Is the Linksys providing DHCP services?

Is your network card a PCI card, a USB adapter, or something on the motherboard?
Can you issue the command ' lshw | grep -A12 "network" ' to help us see more information about your network card ...

I guess we'd like to see the errors (on the RX and TX packets lines) when running ifconfig, my output looks like this:

and from route:
