Hi!

Need help in setting internet connection:-

I have downloaded and installed Ubuntu 5.10 and am trying to connect the cable modem (motorola surfboard SB51001) thru the PCI ethernet card.

I have tried to read many forums for solutions but i dont seem to get it...

ok, the results of "ifconfig" is as follows:-

eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:C0:26:8D7:52
inet6 addr: fe80::2c0:26ff:fe8d:d752/64 Scope:Link

I have also checked thru the "Systems->administration->networking" and under the "connections" tab, there are 2 entries:-
Ethernet connection - the interface eth0 is active
Modem connection - the interface ppp0 is not configured

my com specs are:-
Motherboard: Aopen AX6BC Pro Pentium II 100 Mhz BIOS ver 1.6
Processor: Intel Celeron 400 Mhz
Ram : PC100 SDRAM 256MB
Graphics card: 16 MB Riva TNT2 Creative
Sound card: Vibra128 Creative

Casing : 230 W ATX
CD Drives: 1 X TDK CD-RW 40/12/48 and 1 X CD-ROM

thanks in advance
