Mandriva 2005 LE and Comcast Cable connection


Im tryin to figure out how to setup my connection so i can access the internet through browsers or other means. I'm using a cable modem, and i was wondering what do i have to do to set it up. I used the Mandrake Control Center and went through the wizard and set my connection to 'cable' and it still doesn't seem to work. it showed my dns servers and to be correct because i checked them through windows and they match. Also the ip address that the dhcp gave me matched too. but the thing that bogles me is that it will sometimes connect for a brief time at a slow connect (about 100KbPS), but however about a second after i got to a website it disconnects again and won't connect again. i use comcast cable it that is relevant to anything. If any one knows anything about this it would be a big help.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
