OT: Realtek 8139 hangs after dhcp at startup

This problem seems unrelated to the Fedora OS itself.
Upon startup, after the memory test, when my Realtek 8139 ethernet card
initializes (?), I see the following:
Realtek 8139A/B/C / RTL8130 PCI Fast Ethernet Controller v2.11 (001205)
Client Mac Address: ...... GUID: .......
Client IP: ...... Mask: ..... DHCP IP: .......
Gateway IP: .....
All the addresses/values that display are correct. But then it stops.
And hangs (indefinitely, far as I can tell). If I start the machine
with the ethernet cable unplugged, it bypasses this situation
completely, after which I can plug in the ethernet cable and eth0 comes
up with no issue in FC2.
This problem only recently started occurring when I got Comcast for
Internet. I had no such problems with my LAN at school. I couldn't
find anything in the BIOS to somehow disable this media check upon startup.
