Not sure - but I guess I need to find out, too.

I rebooted my server this morning (Athlon64 on an Nforce3 motherboard
running FC5 in 32-bit mode), and it had some weird networking issues.
As near as I can tell, ICMP (ping) and UDP were working fine, but TCP
was not.  I rebooted to the 2096 kernel and the server was happy. I
suppose the problem _could_ be some hardware incompatibility with the
new kernel, since my NIC is an embedded Nvidia one.

I just rebooted my laptop (P4-based Celeron with Intel NIC) to the
same kernel, and it's networking just fine.

At any rate, it looks like your best bet is to post to the general
Fedora mailing list (go to
http://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/fedora-list, join list, then
send message to fedora-list at redhat.com).
