cable internet setup


I have SuSE Linux 8.2 and I just got cable internet and am trying to set it up. My NIC works fine; in fact it returns an IP of 68.170.107.18 on eth1 from DHCP at startup. I cannot however connect to the net. I'm using KDE 3.1.1. The cable modem is a Terayon TJ715. I'm connecting through ethernet obviously, and the MAC address is 00E06F2EF350. Can anyone help me?

If your recieving DHCP from the cable modem then you should be able to connect to the net unless you have a firewall or something else hindering you. Do you have two nic cards? Why is it eth1 instead of eth0?

Have you eliminated DNS?

Try the following:
ping 64.179.4.146
ping www.linuxquestions.org

Do you get replies from both?

EDIT: Crashed_Again - Only by 50 seconds that time

I need to speak to Jeremy and ask him if he can block me from accessing the site when you are on and vice versa. This is just crazy!

I have an "Integrated" NIC on the motherboard that doesn't have a port; I don't think it exists - eth0. And I have a PCI card - eth1. When I try pinging 64.179.4.146 I get "connect: Network is unreachable." And when I try to ping linuxquestions.org I get "ping: Unknown host linuxquestions.org"

Yeah see, neither of your eth interfaces are up. I think the syntax is:

ifconfig eth1 up

Not %100 about that though.

Try:
ifup eth1

What is your routing table like:
route

OK. Now a bunch of info about eth1 comes up in ifconfig, but the two pings still return the same result, and I can't get anywhere from a browser either.

Depends on how your machine handles dhcp client configuration. THe brute-force method would be to try 'dhcpcd eth1'. If your card is working, you shoudl get an address.

'lspci -vb' will give you information about your hardware, from which you can have a look to see what ethernet controllers are listed.

dhcpcd eth1 did it! Thank you so much. I'll just have to test and make sure it all works on reboot now. Thank you again! You guys rule.
