Ethernet. Linux, NTL cable connecting issue


Hi all, just joined the NTL world...

Having problems connecting to Internet using Ethernet & LINUX, Read lots of different ways to do this, but none seem to work,

I can connect using Ethernet & Win XP no problems.

TIA
Mick

connecting to ntl is really very very very very easy... but you've not said what distro you're on or anything, so specific pointers aren't easy.

use ethernet, set the interface to DHCP, start it. nothing else at all is required.

well that's presumably all static addresses, which isn't *that* much of an issue as your IP hardly ever changes, but you really should be goign dynamic though... either way, it was a doddle at the end right?

ntl

connecting to an ntl cable modem doesnt seem so easy.
what is this about locking MAC addresses to quote

http://www.pcplus.co.uk/tutorials/de...bsectionid=377

"All cable modems require the MAC address of your network card, and many of those supplied by NTL in particular will lock themselves to the first MAC address they’re connected to""

I want to switch between a winXP and Redhat machine hopefully without locking any one MACaddress.

I couldnt run dhcpcd anyway.

Am I heading off at a tangent.??
