Using Motorola Surfboard 5100 USB/Ethernet Cable Modem in Fedora Core 3


I'm not able to use Motorola Surfboard 5100 USB/Ethernet Cable Modem in Fedora Core 3.

The modem has 2 inputs USB OR Ethernet.

Ethernet-- the manufacturer recommends using ethernet for linux, i'm supposed to use DCHP to configure it or something. I however have no idea of how to do that. I tried configuring it with my ethernet card, FC3 won't allow me to select configuring with DCHP however.

USB--i have read a thread where you can recompile the kernel with changes done for the USB, again I have the faintest idea of how to do that.

Any help would be appreciated, linux without the internet seems like a castrated bull to me and i'm sure no linux fan would like to see that.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

Please continue here Thanks -- J.W.
