I don't know about your modem but I do know a little about IP addresses.

You can't use x.x.x.0 that is the network address and you also can't use x.x.x.255 that is the broadcast address to every node on the network.

Change those and see how you go.

I think the reason for the non routable ip address is that the cable modem's address is most likely 192.168.100.1 and is using dhcp to give the nic its address. Basically a cable modem is just a router. What's wierd is my cable modem gives my nic a internet ip. But it differs between ISP.

Sounds like u need the rrlogin patch u can find it here http://www.vortech.net/rrlinux/

Hope this helps

Have fun

Exclamation

this sounds real dumb, but i would check if your subnet mask is correct. Umm, if you are using windows 95/98/ME, go to start, run, and type winipcfg and get the subnet mask, default gateway and ip address. Like i said, i am not sure if it will work.
