Can Windows affect a dhcp cable modem?


Can Windows affect a dhcp cable modem on a dual boot system?

I used to have SUSE and Knoppix functioning fine on a dual boot system with Win 98. Then I had a virus in Win 98 despite having anti-virus software. I had to reinstall Win 98 and then reinstalled linux. Since then I can get on the net with Win 98 and not with linux. I have a COM 21 Modem and my ISP is Cable Wanadoo in the Netherlands.

There is info about the Cable Wanadoo connection in Dutch here:

http://double-l.nl/johan/lwanadoo.html

and English here:

http://home.wanadoo.nl/vwes/com21/intro.html

My ethernet card configuration in Win 98 is shown above.

Any thoughts how to make it go in knoppix?

I've tried DHCP and static IPs. When I try to use pppoeconf it says I another pppoe process. How can I check for this and shut killall pppoe processes in knoppix?

I tried killall pump and got "no process killed" back as reply?

More info in heading "Network Card" (on linux-tag fuorum) and at thei url:

http://www.linuxformat.co.uk/modules...me=phpBB_14&am p;file=index&action=viewtopic&topic=2829&forum=1&11


More info about my setup.

COM 21 cable modem. ISP assigns new IP each time.

I think you should try with no static adresses. It doesn't work well with DHCP.

I am close to solving the problem. I am using static. I had to use the following commands:

ifconfig eth0 up

mii-tool -F 10baseT-HD eth0

pppoeconf

Problem at the moment is that I am in su or root mode.

And the link has to be set each time.

probably a permission thing!
