Setting up Linux to work with Optus Cable Net


Hello,

I live in Australia, and I'm using Optus' Cable Internet. But I can't get it work on my Linux box. On my WindowsXP machine it runs fine, by simple setting the ethernet card to DHCP. But when I change my Ethernet card in Linux to DHCP it doesnt detect it's IP address.

Does anyone have an ideas what will work? or haves anyone setup Optus cable with linux?

Thanks

mctinny

Please try searching the net and reading the how-tos. It took me all of 10 seconds to find this and it wouldn't of taken you too much longer to find it either.

webtoe...thanks for that...but it wasnt much help. Just for the record I did search the net. But couldn't find anything much that was helpful, Optus doesn't use the @home model anymore. And all the howto's I found on the net where for the @home model.

So if anyone else has done this before could they please help me.

Thanks,

mctinny

Well you should of said that in your original post otherwise people will think that you haven't even bothered trying to solve it. That leads to a lot of the experienced people here just not looking at your post.
