Help need to connect to internet


Hi,

Does anyone know how to connect to the internet using SuSE Linux 9.1? i'm using a Motorola SURFboard SB5100 USB cable modem. Linux doesn't find the right driver for it and as the correct driver is on the Blueyonder installation disk i can't get it.

So can anyone help me? i'm completely new to Linux so a step by step guide would be helpful.

Cheers

Mart

I believe the modem also has a ethernet i.e. RJ45 connector.
You will need to add a ethernet card but then no driver is required.
