USB cable modem problem (Scientific Atlanta WebSTAR EPX2203)


Hi! I have a Scientific Atlanta WebSTAR EPX2203 cable modem on USB, and unfortunately linux (tried Mepis, Knoppix) does not see it at all. I checked the producer's site and it does not offer drivers for Linux. It works perfectly in Win XP but I want to start use Linux, and without the internet... Please tell me what can I do. I am not too technical on Linux.

According to the documentation I found the modem has an ethernet port. If you connect the modem to your PC via an ethernet card you do not need a special driver.

Oh, yes, this is true, but I forgot to mention I already have a home network and the network card is busy. I wonder how can I use the modem in Linux with the USB port connected to PC.
