Need to use Comcast broadband connection
Our choices in Tallahassee, FL for broadband service are pretty much limited to Embarq and Comcast. We had service from Embarq, but we moved to another part of town and all we could get is Comcast. Of course, Comcast doesn't provide support for Linux (another reason I don't like them much as a company), so I need help interfacing my Mandriva OS with Comcast broadband.
I found an article on the internet that talked about using a pc with Windows and wireless router to connect to the cable modem, then connecting the linux box to the router (and I'm assmuming disconnecting the PC). I've tried that but I wasn't successful -- I think partly because I didn't know enough to set up a wireless network using Windows.
Anyway, any help I get will have to be somewhat simplified. I hope there's someone out there who can tell me what I need to do.
