No internet without router?
A year ago I got a router for Tivo. I no longer have Tivo so I don't need the router, but when I take out the router and just use the cable modem I can't connect to the internet.
I've connected it and disconnected it, checked the wires, rebooted; it's always the same. I try ifdown eth0 ifup eth0 and it just verifies that I have no connection without the router.
I wouldn't even care except I'm trying to use Azureus for torrents and I can't connect to the net when I disable NAT (really cheap router).
The router is a generic wired 4 port, cable modem is comcast motorola and I'm running Debian Etch.
