Ntl Cable modem (usb) on CL


Okay,
ATM i'm using College Linux 2.5 and i can't seem to connect to the internet, I have searched the forum and tried the 'solutions' but none work. If anyone knows a solution that works on cl, could you please post it here. (And since cl is based on slackware shouldn't a solution that works for slackware work for cl :S)

Ty in advance,

--Mahony.

please detail WHY the solutions here don't work (and what they are of course) we can't work blind with no useful inofmration. i'd VERY strongly recommend using ethernet instead though.

Thanks for the quick response :|
I tried http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...threadid=77412
And it didn't get me connected, and I tried a script on this forum which I can't seem to find :S and that didn't work either, any help?

I have NTL and use ethernet to connect. You will need a network card and to uncover the network port on your cable modem. It's much easier to set up and use than the usb option.

I have never gotten the usb solution to work.

But then again, once I went with the ethernet solution, my incentive to solve the usb problem was no longer there.

Nothing. It all just worked. What does ifconfig give you?

Is your ethernet card being detected? Is there a hardware setup option in CL?

Give /sbin/modprobe a go and then:
ifconfig eth0 up
dhclient eth0
