So, you can get to the Surfboard config page then? That means they should be networked correctly.

Try to ping -c 3 64.233.167.99 which is the IP for google. If that works, then it's probably a DNS issue and you need to put nameservers into /etc/resolv.conf.

He didn't say to ping the name, he said to ping

ping -c 3 64.233.167.99

does that work?

Ahh, sorry for the misunderstanding. Perhaps then you don't have drivers for the modem? Has a google search revealed anything? Something like "linux drivers surfboard"?

Did you ever confirm that you can connect to the Motorola's config page (I think 192.168.1.100 or 192.168.100.1, I'm not at home to see which it is). Also, are you using the ethernet connection or the USB connection. For linux, the ethernet connection is the way to go...
