Re: Cable Modem Blues...



I believe the clue might be in the line that says:

May  3 00:24:13 cj49180-a kernel: PIIX4: not 100% native mode: will probe 
irqs later

There may be something in the kernel you can tune to force the correct
interrupt. Didn't you write that you installed a quick and dirty
(is there any other kind?) version of Win98 to check the IRQ? If so, you
should be able to force feed the bootup to accept that IRQ. I just don't
know where it is off hand.

I've also read somewhere that cable modems are a pain when compared to
DSL which uses a simple router.
