Hmmm. It should just plain work... I have an IPC running RH 6.2 and using an
AVI (el cheapo) transceiver-- it installed and worked straight out of the box.
I'd suspect either your network configuration or the transceiver itself.
Note that in the standard RH install, it plugs in a value for the gateway
address (and the DNS server address), so if you didn't change the value to the
real gateway, you ain't routing packets...
