Hi,

After installing Fedora7, I tried to connect to the gateway 192.168.0.1, but it failed with above message. But I can connect without problem from Windows XP.
Below is some information about the network interface in my laptop:

Code:

Please tell me if you need more information regarding the network interface.

I desperately need your help since I'm not a network expert enough to solve this problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advanced.

Best Regards,

Setya
