Re: setting up a cable-modem
The card is made by General Instruments. The TV cable does go into the back of the
card. In my house, we have only 1 cable box, and that's in the living room. My
linux box is in my room. So there's no cable box within 25 feet of my computer. I
read the cable-modem mini-HOWTO and it says that linux supports my ISP (MediaOne).
The HOWTO says that it will detect the card, then use DHCP to talk with the 'net. I
can't even get Linux to detect it. Debian won't detect it on boot, so when the boot
prompt comes up, I type: linux ether=11, 0x300. This does not work either. Any
Might be unrelated, but I think that no spaces are allowed in
arguments; i.e., "linux ether=11,0x300" is more correct.
