I have Fedora 19 on my laptop. At first, it works great. However, this week it was unable to obtain an IP address on the "Wired" network(DHCP). While, the "Wi-Fi" is still working. The "ifconfig" show the network is still there.

mtu 1500
        inet6 fe80::3e97:eff:fe75:eadc  prefixlen 64  scopeid 0x20<link>
        ether 3c:97:0e:75:ea:dc  txqueuelen 1000  (Ethernet)
        RX packets 278982  bytes 34043815 (32.4 MiB)
        RX errors 0  dropped 742  overruns 0  frame 0
        TX packets 563  bytes 108914 (106.3 KiB)
        TX errors 0  dropped 0 overruns 0  carrier 0  collisions 0

Recently, I upgraded the kernel, and install vmware on my pc. While, at that time, it was still working. After the weekend, it is unable to setup the "Wired" network. How can I recover the "Wired" network?

Can you post the entire output of 'ifconfig -a'? There is probably another interface... beyond your wireless.
