    I also tried plugging my ethernet wire directly into the back of the NTL set top box so I eliminated any problems with the router, when I did this it lit up on my Linux Box saying that there was a connection, but when I tried to activate it in the Network Configuration it said that there was no connection, check cable!

    I think it is red hat linux version 9

    Hi am I stating the obvious here?

    If you connect directly to your ethernet connection from your NTL box I presume this is a normal broadband connection and will thus give you a new dynamic IP address each time.

    Linux requires a bash file to configure the IP address to connect to. As this changes every time you need a bash file to do this with Dynamic DNS or you could use a static IP address.

    I am a newbie to Linux and I am using debian but this sounds like the correct thing to do to me?

    I hope this helps
