DHCP with a Woody
Well, I finally got this cable modem working with the DHCP. For posterity what i had to do was unplug the cable modem from it's power supply for two hours and then plug it back in as i rebooted my masquerade server. It was almost a tie for which would get done first, but luckily the cable modem was done by the time linux showed, "configuring network interfaces...." and now i have broadband.
Well, not really, but it's damn closer than i had been before. I can make a connection. The problem now is i get many bad and continous RX errors. To wit:
Well, fsck, i destroyed the evidence. (am back on dial up for the moment). Will reproduce the problem again very soon and will post.
I haven't looked it up, anyway; i just wanted to show resolution to the first problem and threw the RX errors riddle in here gratuitously.
Oh, if my parole officer knew i have email!
