Toshiba PCX1100U USB Cable Modem + Redhat 9
Alright, here's the problem.
First off, I'm a newbie so go easy.
I've been useing Mandrake 8.2, which detected the Cable Modem as a network card and set itself up flawlessly.
I then recently decided to upgrade to Mandrake 9.1, it detected my USB Modem, but it was under Other/Unknown Devices.
Being fed up with trying to get it to work under Mandrake 9.1, I reformated the partition and installed Red Hat 9.
Redhat 9 autodetected the modem and automaticaly set up CDCEther as the module it uses. I then set up an ethernet connection useing that device and set it to automatically obtain IP info.
After doing this I tried to activate the connection. The light on the modem blinks (meaning its sending data), but shortly after it times out and says could not obtain IP address.
I also have WinXP loaded on this machine and the modem works fine.
