Ethernet connection problems
I was hoping that someone would be able to give me some input on this. Here's my problem, I am currently connected via a USB cable. For some reason I'm unable to connect my computer to the internet via an ethernet cable. Actually when i first got service with my ISP i was able to connect using the ethernet cable. After about a day I was unable to connect with my ISP. After calling tech support it turned out my modem's mac address had not been registered on the network. After resolving that issue I was still unable to connect with the ethernet cable. Tech support walked me through numerous things to troubleshoot but nothing helped. Finally I was told to try connecting using a USB . With the USB I was able to connect with Windows but when I can't connect when using linux (fedora5). If this helps I have set up dual OS on my computer using 2 separate hard drives. Is this a hardware, software, or ISP problem? Is it possible to connect linux to the internet using a USB cable. Any help would be most appreciated.
