Internet Connection


Hi,
I've a problem with connecting to the Internet with Motorola Surfboard 4100 USB Cable modem.

The interface of the modem is eth1.

Here is the information I could get:

check the connect process while running tcpdump on different window...

#tcpdump -i any |grep PPP

I have also read (on this very site) about problems using USB cable modems ... use the search button to make sure it is not a hardware problem.

I have that same modem and have no problems using the ethernet connection. I know it's not what your looking for, but If you can't get the usb working you can always go that route.
