Motorola Cable modem and SuSE 9.1
I got cable internet installed in my house today from cableone.net and they provided me with a cable modem made by Motorola which has 1 slot for an ethernet cord and also has built in wireless. It is model# SB5101 SURFboard cable modem. It works excellently with my ancient laptop running Damn Small Linux (kernel 2.4) via an ethernet cord adapter plugged into the PCMCIA slot, and the wireless works excellently in another room of the house on a Windows XP machine via a Wireless G USB adapter made by Belkin, but when I try to use it on my main machine that I use all the time, a desktop computer running SuSE 9.1, no websites will come up on Mozilla, and if I click on Modems under the Network Devices tab of Yast2, it finds the Motorolla Cable Modem which is connected with a USB cable, and shows it as "Motorola ING USB Cable Modem", but when I click on it to configure it, it asks for a phone number like it thinks it is a dial up modem or something, and will not let me proceed without a phone number. Does anybody know how to fix this?
