The cable connection does not uses any cable modem. It just uses a cable wire which is connected to my LAN card.
Are you sure? This is kinda odd...
Anyway, as root, in the console try to issue the command:
This will let you see some basic network configs.
In my suse box, to activate the net interface I do:
ifup eth0 (eth0 is the name of my card connected to the cable modem)
When I ifup eth0, the dhcp client looks for a server to get an ip. When it gets one, i'm ready to navigate.
Also, try the command: ifconfig eth0 up (Some setups use this).
Post again, if you need. And be welcome!
