our DHCP server is probably just disabled, but I have written up terse instructions for you to follow anyway. It's a good thing to know!
if you use route to manage your routing tables like I do, seting a default gateway is easy...
route add default gw
dns is really easy. Edit the file /etc/ and add the line
the routing table will need to be configured each time your computer starts. Fedora should provide a utility for setting the default gateway. /etc/ is just a regular file, and will persist until changed by you or by automatic configuration via dhcp.
