What brand/model is your modem? If it's a Speedtouch (very popular in Europe; I don't know about the US) you may wanna give this a try
http://speedtouchconf.sourceforge.net/. Best luck!

No, it's not! I got no experience with Speedstreams; But still, you may wanna tell us the exact model for others to be able to help.

easy way to do this (IMO) is to get a router (D-link or Linksys - my choices) and set up the router with DHCP - (with out having to install the modem drivers). Having the router connect to your isp and be logged on 24/7. As I said, this is one way.

well....is your modem connected to your pc by a ethernet connection ?
in that case, you just need to setup your network.

It worked for me on Fedora Core 1, the instructions are fairly easy with minimal knowledge.
