Question Connecting Cable Modem via Usb

I looked and searched everywhere.I found something useful and use them but still I have problems.
I use a laptop with slackware 10.0 and kernel 2.6.7.I had an onboard ethernet device(sis900)which has bug according to other users on net.
So I try to connect my Netmaster Cable Modem via usb.Here problems being occure.I closed the ethernet adapter by rmmode sis900.Then I checked my sistem with lsconfig it gives me that my usb connection became eth0.And it gives its ip as I enter the konqueror it opens the cable modem wizard page.But after it didn't give outer ip.So I cant login to net.I only see modem wizard page.
Any solutions for me??

Ok I solve the problem.
After ifconfig and see ip as;
ipconfig eth0 looked from windows) netmask
route -n
route add default gw ip from route table below)
Then pico /etc/resolve.conf ----> netmask

After these steps I coneect my pc to internet but my connection speed is too slow as 14.4kpbs.But it must be much more faster than this.Bcs its cable and usb...

My ping times are about 100 or 200 ms.But my download rate is nearly 200 bayt/s. What will be the wrong?
