I have a cable modem to connect to internet. I've got no problems using it in Windows(by USB or by ethernet) but in Linux I have no idea how can I configure and get access to internet by the cable-modem.

Do you have any idea about this?
Thanks

What distro? Usually you just run netconf as root, and make sure dhcp is enabled.

I have installed the Red Hat 8.0 version.
The way you said me was using the LAN cable but is there any way to use the modem connected by the USB port?

Anyway if it really works using the network dispositive, it will be ok.

There probably is. Unfortuneatly, I don't have much linux + USB networking experience...
