http://forums.fedoraforum.org – hi 2 all, I am new to fedora. I have two problems 1) The problem i faced i already disscussed at http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=212936 I have installed 64 Bit Fedora 10 on a computer. I am having a strange problem configuring the eth0 device. I try to set a static IP address. The problem is whatever I type in the Default Gateway Address becomes the Subnet Mask. So I type in the IP, then the Subnet Mask of 255.255.0.0, then the Gateway of 10.10.1.2. I push OK, leave the tab, then return to it. When I return, both the Subnet Mask AND the Default Gateway are 255.255.0.0. I tried the solution Close down system-config-network and run ifdown eth0 then cd to /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts and edit the file called ifcfg-eth0 and fill in the relevent details. ifup eth0 and you should now be right. but after entering ifup eth0 the terminal says RTNETLINK answers: Invalid arguments. 2) I am using Acer quad core Desktop machine. Can I connect Wi-fi also in the linux like that one in a Laptop. Please help. Thanks Dev (HowTos)
