When the blue screen appeared, and nothing else, I wnet out for coffee and on my return there was a login screen so I logged in and seet up FF, TB etc. Hoping things were OK, I shut down, and next day I started up and never let me log in even today, after waiting an hour. Guess this isn't much help but it is how I logged in that one time.       Bob

Things never work very well for me before having coffee either, but
that's probably not the real solution.  So when you established that
your network and DNS was working, Gnome was working too?   Can you log
in on a virtual character-mode terminal session (control-alt-F2) and
try the ifconfig and dig commands again?    If everything appears to
work there, I'd try a 'yum update' just on general principles.
