Because most Internet via Kabel Provider uses a Kabel-Modem to connect to the internet and do VoIP I do write this article.
There is now no more gateway needed if you don't connect a router with the modem.
The IP address and DNS is fetched dynamicaly over the modem direct from the provider's server.
Howto (configure the computer (router) connected directly to the modem via Ethernet)
- Make sure your Ethernet card is named in the file:///etc/network/interfaces like
iface eth0 (or Your-Card-Name) and no more extending lines, only this line for this
device is needed.
- Type in a root terminal > " dhcpcd eth0 (or Your-Card-Name) "
- reddy ! Internet is now useable !
- If you want this to be setup each time the computer boots up then add this to the file:///etc/init.d/network(ing) to the section start in a new line : " dhcpcd eth0 (or Your-Card-Name) ".
dhcpcd has a start, stop (up, down) mechanism, too. So read " info dhcpcd " for more information about that.
