I have Motorola SURFboard Cable Modem SB5100 for 3 days. I Tryied configure it on Debian (newest unstable) and kernel 188.8.131.52. I have another computer connected with server with Cable Modem by ethernet card - so i need to have free Ethernet Card (as a last resort i by new card...).
What I have done:
- I can make new interface (only eth0) with property HW ADDRESS,
- I prefer USB connection, and found (on google) many people get it work by USB, so "modprobe usbnet" work fine
What I haven't done:
- DHCP faill:
/etc/dhcpc/dhcpcd.exe: line 49: .: filename argument required
.: usage: . filename [arguments]
dhcpcd.exe: wrong interface name ""
- other interfaces than eth0 don't work (can't find device by HWADDRESS):
ifconfig eth0 hw ether xx:xx:xx:xx:xx up
I tryied configure Modem by Ethernet cable - but i have problems too.
Under win2k Modem via USB work fine, and I can see all of great configuration (for ex. in cmd line: ipconfig).
If you Chibi or anyone can write correct configuration (the best for Debian) of DHCP, network interfaces and all need scripts.
THANKS VERY MUCH
