Cable Modem [Jun. 9th, 2000|09:40 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
Ah yea' ..... today at 6 pm or so the cable guys came and install our cable modem. They were gonna install a USB device and I was like, "No ... use an extra ethernet card." And he goes, "Okay, but why?" I say, "So we don't have to run Windows if we don't want." He goes, "But if you don't have Windows, what would you run? How would you use Internet Explorer?" *sigh* Linux, I say. Win98SE's Internet Connection sharing (IP masquerading, or NAT, whatever you want to call it) works okay, but it's still on Windows, so whenever somebody reboots, the house network connection goes down. Anyway, it's all working now, after shitloads of resource conflicts ... the 3rd network card did the trick (an old NE2000 ISA card... heh.) But yeah, hella fast now.... lovin' it.

I am using my ADSL line connected on a Linux firewall and connected to 3 others computers... I kinda like ipchains... :) Anyway you certainly feel better now, don't you?

You should look at Umax UGate internet sharing device... it's a firewall/masquerade box ... the most inexpensive gives you two Ethernet port connected to Cable/ADSL the other to the hub... I used to have that before the phone company switched to PPPoE...

FYI... The BEFSR41 - EtherFast 4-Port Cable/DSL Router from Linksys supports PPPoE with the latest firmware upgrade.

Re:

My UMax support also PPPoE, just 4 months after I get it to work inside Linux

I heard that there is a wireless way of connecting computers with 100 feet? They used radio wave and can clock speed of 1.5mbps. Wonder if it is true?
