Geeze I'm starting to think Linux hates me. lol. I have the display working but now I can't get the net to connect. Try to have it auto detect but no luck, then I try to it myself. I entered the ip, gateway, and mask, but no luck still

I have a cable modem. Surfboard SB5120, and its a LAN connection to the University.
thanks for help

How exactly does your computer connect to the Internet? Do you have cable service, and use that surfboard modem, or are you plugged directly into a university ethernet line?

you should have used dhcp like me lol, that way it queries the server for an ip...no configuration there
it should be a default setting.

Also, just to add:
I found on Motorola's website that the modem is compatible with linux when ussing the ethernet cable and not the USB cable. And the ethernet cable is the one I use.

ok, /sbin/ifconfig -a worked and gave the following:

eth0:1 Link encap: Ethernet HWaddr 00:11:11:8B:88:F3
inet addr: 24.210.244.255 Bcast: 24.210.247.255 Mask: 255.255.252.0
