http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Have a broadcom 5782 NIC, worked great with Windows OS, Fedora 16 and older, CentOS 6.2 and older, etc. But in Fedora 17, the BCM5782 NIC can not bind to TCP/IP, never acquires IP address? Anyone run into this issue? ---------- Post added at 09:49 PM ---------- Previous post was at 08:58 PM ---------- A bit more information, static IP assignment in ifcfg-* file for BCM5782 NIC works. Explicit disable of NetworkManager, enable of network service, no impact. Consistent error in /var/log/messages... NODHCPOFFERS received. Yet, link state it good. Disabled SELinux, and iptables and ip6tabl (HowTos)
