this problem began on my IBM Netvista when i statically set IP address on eth0 and subsequently could not connect.  i changed back to "Automatically obtain IP address settings with dhcp", rebooted and still could not connect.  i noticed the device was inactive and when i changed to active i got connection back (duh).  but here's the point: even though i check marked "Activate device when computer starts" it is inactive upon rebooting and i have to activate each time now ever since i tried to statically set the IP address, no other changes.  theory: this is either a Fedora8 bug or i am missing something here.

Edit /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 and make sure it has a line like;

ONBOOT=yes

Cheers,

thanks for help.  i checked, and that line "ONBOOT=yes" just matches whatever settings one has with that check mark box "Activate device when computer starts", so it did say "ONBOOT=yes" despite booting w/o it actually active and my having to reactivate it manually every time following reboot.

ok, but i did solve the problem.  i put check mark in "Controlled by NetworkManager" and that did it.
