NTL cable on slackware?


I've just got NTL cable installed and am having probs with getting any sort of response whatsoever. I've set up to boot with dhcp but its just giving me a local 10.*.*.* address and I`m not recieving any traffic whatsoever.

I`ve tried various things using dhcpcd but to no avail. Has anyone had any luck here with slackware and NTL or does anyone have any ideas?

Any help much appreciated

Does it work with Windows?
Are your physically connected correctly? Crossover cable?
How are you calling dhcpcd? Have you tried running it from the command line?
Try watch the execution of the network rc script. Execute it by hand with shell debugging:
Code:
cd /etc/rc.d
sh -x ./rc.inet1
Watch the flow of the script and see why you are assigned a 10. address. It looks to me like if DHCP is set to yes then you should never get assigned a 10 address.
Is your IP dyanamic or static? If you have a static IP try to ping it. See if you see your nic lights blinking.
Are you sure you nic works? Can you connect to another box with it?

i'm on ntl 512kbps, and i get a full inet IP. not sure about that, maybe ntl have done their usual and are screwing their customers over again. you are connecting it via ethernet and not USB?

Thanks for the help guys. I`ve sorted it now.

I found out that dhcpcd wasnt running properly.

For any future NTL slackware users. Use dhcpcd -n -H eth?

then surf along to the http://start.html page where it registers ur MAC address, then reboot both ur pc and set top box (i`m using a set top box btw).

Then it should give u an ip, and your on your way.

Simple really. doh!

'using' a set top box? in what sense? any idea if that serial port on the tv box is any use? that'd rock.

LOL yeah that would rock. But no, my ethernet comes straight out of the set top box for the tv straight into my ethernet on my box.
