i have a old box sitting around.....
(800 mhz 128 meg ram)
and i decide to install redhat 7.3 professional editon on it (ok install works great and i installed the setts for server with gnome) now i take my hub (split 3 way to my other 2 pcs) connected to my cable modem and hook it up ready to get it online to host my personal site....its a SURFboard SB4100 Cable Modem....connected to a hub...even when i try to directly connect the modem to the pc and try to get on the net....nothing....any ideas? (i cant install the drivers because they are build for a windows machine)
I may be wrong.
But I have a Surfboard SB4200 at home and it works without any problems.
There are two connections. One is via a USB port another is an ethernet port.
I just use the ethernet.
My Modem is connected to my Redhat 7.3 and it works well.
Why do you need a driver as this is an external network device. You just need to set the network.
Have a nice day
