cable internet setup
I'm a Linux newbie with RH 8.0 I had DSL service through MSN for ~1 yr (worked for 6 months of that time). During this period, I used Windows and Linux, with the DSL working immediately upon installing RH on my pc without additional configuration. However, I mysteriously lost service for 1 month's time and MSN told me there was a red flag on my account and service was no longer available to me.
I'm still interested in high-speed internet service but the DSL experience has me a little nervous about signing on. I have read about using cable modem service with linux but remain confused, what additional hardware do i need (if any)? does anybody have any first hand experience with cable/linux configs? Any suggestions or thoughts on other options for me or internet configuration in general for newbies like myself are welcomed. The provider would be Cox cable if it helps. Let me know if I have not provided enough information.
