  1. i will post what i posted on the other 4 forums lol, your the first to respond to any of them so i thank you for that... Ok, i have been taking some free time aside for 3 months now trying to get this working. Hopefully someone in here can help me out. The scenario: Pentium 233 No Ethernet Card, Just USB Debian Sarge running BlackBox Linksys BEFCMU10 v3 USB Modem Comcast Cable My main computer is a compaq laptop. I use the ethernet port on the modem for internet access. There is also a USB port on the back of the modem. I want to be able to use that USB port to get my old p233 online. I am currently out of a job an literally have no money so purchasing a 20 dollar ethernet card is out of the question (i know its sad). When I plug the modem into the old pc via usb the usb light on the modem turns red\orange and blinks. When I boot up the system (everything scrolls by too fast to accurately see what it says) I see at one point when its scanning the usb devices "Linksys USB Ethernet....." or something like that. So I know the system can see the device. After I get into a desktop, i start tinkering around with the pppconfig stuff. It tells me that it sees "1 connection, eth0..." so I run the test. At this point the USB light on the modem turns GREEN!! I think YAY! However my excitement is short lived when it tells me that there was no response from the device and the config program times out. I found this post here: http://www.linuxquestions.org/hcl/sh...703&cat=myprod Which clearly stats that it IS possible to get this modem working. But I'm still learning linux and I don't know anything about... CDCEther, af_packet modules, ifcfg-usb-eth, or any of that. Can someone please help me out here. And help is good help.
  2. I have an old box with no ethernet, just usb. my cable modem supports usb connections, a Linksys BEFCMU10 ver3. When i boot up tahe system recognizes it because i see it print Linksys USB..... on the screen. I've been searching the net for days on this now and can't figure it out.
