Hi! I have this problem... I had internet through cable one month ago and I could browse through internet with no problem... but just today I changed Internet Provider and now Vector Linux doesnt recognizes the modem! Windows detects the USB cable modem but Vector Linux doesnt! Why does this happens if VL detected the modem with my old internet provider and now not. I have a Motorola SB5120 Surfboard Cable Modem. I went to Motorola's web page and indeed the modem is compatible with Linux.
I connected it to the USB port because I dont have Network Card, but this is no problem I think because the old modem was connected to the USB port as well.
I hope you can help me out because I do really want to surf internet witl VL!
