I have a similar question too. I am trying to get my
brother/sister-in-law's computer to connect on a RR cable hookup. The
service guy from the cable company (Cox network I think) installed the nic
& cable box for them to work in there Windows system. Now they want to
move over to there SuSE 8.1 disk and connect to the cable. It was no
problem setting up the nic with DHCP. The card gets assigned an IP
address automagically. However, interfacing to the card is another matter
which no one seems to be addressing!!!
With a dial-up (modem) or DSL connection you hook up through kinternet or
something to that affect. This dialog provides a logon (handshake) to the
network. Unfortunately, I thought I'd be setting up this cable
connection the same way. Now when I try to connect to the cable the DSL
setup is IN THE WAY. I can't remove it (don't know how). If setting up
the nic with DHCP is all there is to it, then how does an application like
konqueror know to use the connection through the nic???
I see no dialog to set up cable so I assume there is none??
Help. I'm probably missing something here!
P.S. If I ramble too much it's because I'm only on the first cup o java
