I have a problem I've looked threw the search of the forums and couldn't find no answers to my problem. My slackware linux 9.1 does not let me connect to the internet at all. The modem is a Toshiba external Cable modem pcx2200 model.
I've tried the Usb and Ethernet cables but it does not seem to want to work. I have also tried to change the network setup. The Ip changes constantly for my connection and My computer's ram is 256 DDR ram with a Pentium 4 processor (1.99Ghz) and my Isp is Cox Internet services.
Any help at all would be taken very kindly towards, please help...
I really want to get away from Microsoft as much as I can.
try a different distro, theres nothong wrong with slack it's a great distro i'm starting to play around with it now and again to get the "REAL" linux experience but it's very hard to configure right, I've been using linux now for about 6-7 months and consider myself pretty descent. but I also have slack no where near ready to run solo yet. While my main distro (Fedora 1) is running 100%.... YA fedora running 100% I've really had no probs with it.
Before you give up try one more thing....
The module may not be loaded for your ethernet card. I have a Linksys card and the module was not being loaded for mine. I seached the net and discovered it was the tulip module that was needed. Then I went to /etc/rc.d/rc.modules and uncommented the line to load the tulip module. Then reboot or execute the rc.modules files (just reboot). If that was the problem then all will be good.
Yep, I have the exact same problem / exact same Cable Modem (Toshiba) / and the same ISP (Cox-Communications). The only difference, is that I'm running Mandrake 9.2 instead of SlackWare. I've also tried SuSe 8.0 and Redhat 9.0 as well and encountered the same inability to log onto the internet via my cable modem.
It's just like you say, they give you a constantly changing address number, and it's as if Mandrake won't work unless the address is a static one.
