Thanks for taking interest in this problem.

No just one interface at a time is active.  ifconfig shows only one with
an assigned IP address and netstat -rn shows the active interface in the
last column.

I can ping the DNS servers listed in the resolv.conf file.  But trying
to resolve names with them when the wired interface is being used does
not work.  Did not have this issue under FC2.  

Could this be an issue with NetworkManager?  Been using that for awhile
mainly with the wireless connection.  I noticed this problem when I
traveled to another site and connected up using a wired connection.  I
have since reproduced the problem here.  I think when I first brought
the system up I used the wired connection.  But installed NetworkManager
to get the wireless working.

Is it possible to extract NetworkManager completely from a system?  I
may try that next just to see if I can get the wired connection working.
