Is anyone aware of any issues with the old Lan City personal cable
modems, and linux? I'm trying to help out a friend in a rural area get
his cable modem service operating with linux, but I've had no success to
date. The cable company is using static addresses not dhcp. After
setting up the address for the card, the gateway required (as defined by
the cable company), and the necessary routes, I could see the nameserver
arp requests from the cable company's namserver (using tcpdump -i eth1),
but I cannot ping the gateway or the nameservers. I can however ping the
eth1 address ok. I tested the modem from the macos, and on a windows
notebook to be sure, and the cables and modem are ok. Any suggestions
