I just finished installing RedHat Linux 7.3 (GNOME)
dualboot with winxp! and i want to be able to use
my internet connection with linux how do i install
(it is a Motorola SURFboard SB4100 Cable Modem/USB)
i've been looking into forums for an anwser
but all i get is network cards info... i need to
know how to install my cable modem
First invest in a Ethernet card. The 4100 doesn't have usb drivers at this time and won't work in Linux. You might do a search for some generic that might work but that would be wasting your time. The funny thing is, is that most of the USB drivers still don't even work that well with WindowsXP. Our installers in Austin always install a nic if the customer is running XP at their home.
But an ethernet card would be less hassle and your going to get a better connection/stability out of your RR connection.
follow trickykid's advice...call Time warner, and tell them you need them to change your USB modem for an Ethernet modem, and if you don't have an ethernet card, tell them to privide it for you as well. Tell them your USB port is not working or whatever, but get rid of that USB thing,
