High Speed Internet(DSL)on cross platforms
This is more of an annoyance than a serious problem but in configuring AT&T DSL in the "live" CD versions of Puppy Linux and Freespire I find that subsequently Windows XP will not recognize the Ethernet card. The somewhat clumsy fix I've come up with is to shut down XP, remove the card and boot up. Then shut down XP again, reinstall the card and reboot. Windows XP will then inevitably find the card. Can anyone tell me why this anomaly occurs since both versions of Linux and Windows show the connection as eth0? I'd like to install Freespire as a dual boot but only if there's a more intuitive way of getting on the internet across operating systems.
