cable modem help
I recently got cable internet, and when I hooked it up to my computer it worked ok. but after restarting, it seemed I had a hostname problem, it seem that it was automatically set by the internet? but this created somekind of host name error. then I couldn't get on the internet either. after a long while of trying, I got the hostname to read: localhost again, but I still don't get the internet...
is there a way to start over, or some fix? I'm using mandrake 9.2, i've made the changes in the control panel for the network.
it took a great number of trys to get mandrake to realize the host name had changed.
Currently my system is connected directly to the cable modem, via ethernet card. how should I set this up?
