Re: Cable Modem Blues...



Hola,
The following three lines from your /var/log/messages are similar to mine except
for the IRQ 0. That isn't right:(
IRQ 0 is system timer. My Linksys card on this box is IRQ5
Try cat /proc/interrupts to see what your iRQs are.
You might need to set the pci irq's in your bios.
Also try cat /proc/pci  to see more detailed info....

Let me know what the output of the above is and I may be able to help.
Once you can ping , telnet, ftp and such between boxen, you can share your
cable  modem connection several ways.
You can set up a linux box as a gateway router with ipchains (ipmasq) or use a
hardawre router or use a Win98 software solution such as WinProxy.


Laterz,
