Hi, today I installed a new cable modem (Arris TM402P/220), which has an
RJ45 type connection and USB. My notebook with Linux (Red-Hat 9 with
2.4.20-8 on an i686) only has USB (no ehternet card), so here is my problem:
Output of /sbin/lsmod is
usb-uhci 26348 0 (unused)
usbcore 78784 1 [acm hid usb-uhci]
According to http://www.freewebs.com/linuxnet/CableUSBLinuxEn.html
I need a later Kernel, since I don't have eth1 and CDCEther on the output
Is there a driver that I can download and use without having to install a
new Kernel? I have only dial-up in my notebook with linux so downloading an entire new Kernel would last a week...
Besides, I have usb-uhci and the guide I read mentions usb-ohci. Can
I conclude I have no chance with hooking my notebook to cable? Is the only
way out a new Kernel?
Appreciate any suggestions and Answers,
thank's in advance.
