fedora 17 network not starting, works fine starting manually

I'm using Fedora 17. For some reason the network does not start automatically when booting the machine but works fine when starting manually.

My system is set to start automatically on runlevel 5:

]# ls -l /etc/systemd/system/default.target lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 36 Apr 15 2012 /etc/systemd/system/default.target -> /lib/systemd/system/runlevel5.target

Bridge startup script:

cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-br0

DEVICE=br0 ONBOOT=yes BOOTPROTO=static TYPE=Bridge DELAY=0 IPADDR=192.168.1.100 NETMASK=255.255.255.0 GATEWAY=192.168.1.254 DNS1=208.67.222.222 DNS2=208.67.220.220

and the main config file for the physical NIC:

cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-p20p1

DEVICE="p20p1" ONBOOT=yes HWADDR=00:1A:4D:46:CB:AA BRIDGE=br0 NM_CONTROLLED=yes

I believe I tried this on CentOS 6.x and it works fine there. I'm not too familiar with systemd, yet, to troubleshoot this properly.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks
