Titel: Actiontec 701 connection problems  BeitragVerfasst am: 06.10.2006, 15:03 Uhr

Hello all, and please help!! I am not a newbie yet, I am a rank beginner so please excuse my ignorance. I love Kanotix but I can not get any version but 2005-4 to function properly with our Actiontec 701 (not wireless) DSL modem (through Qwest).
(And, yes, I have "googled" this and I know that this particular modem is a POS, but it's all we have or can afford right now.)
When using 2005-4 as a live CD it picks up the modem and I'm off and running but after a hard drive install there are minor problems. I must use "netcardconfig" to get the system to "recognize" the modem after every boot. After I rerun that it's fine until I shut down. The modem is connected to the love of my life's machine through her network card and to mine through the USB connection. For reasons I won't go into, it has to stay this way for now.
When I use ANY version of Kanotix after 2005-4 it simply ignores the modem entirely (both live CD and HD install) and "netcardconfig" cannot (will not) find it.
What file(s) does "netcardconfig" write to or create (under 2005-4) and can I dump it (them) to one of the fat32 partitions and "pull" it/them back after a HD install of a later version and put it/them ... where?
I also have a lot of problems with apt-get updat but those can wait.
My machine is dual-boot (hda1 30 gig Win2K under fat32, hda2 30 gig fat32, hda3 35 gig Kanotix reiserfs, hda4 2 gig swap and about 18gig left unpartitioned). It is an Athalon 2000+ with 512 RAM, nVidia MX/MX400 if that matters).
Thank you ALL in advance for any help you can provide, it will be MUCH appreciated!!!

Please boot your computer off the Kanotix-2005-04-LiveCD, connect to the Internet and post the output of the following commands:
Code:
ifconfig -a
cat /etc/network/interfaces
cat /etc/resolv.conf
lsmod | grep -i usb

You can "probably" copy and paste these 2 files

/etc/network/interfaces
/etc/network/ifstate


to a fat32 partition or write them down and have it overwrite (or manually edit) the 2 on a harddrive install, this does not "always" work, but is worth a try Winken

knoppix@0[knoppix]$ ifconfig -a
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:15:05:19:CA:6F
inet addr:192.168.0.3 Bcast:192.168.0.255 Mask:255.255.255.0

knoppix@0[knoppix]$ cat /etc/network/interfaces
# /etc/network/interfaces -- configuration file for ifup(Cool, ifdown(Cool

# The loopback interface
# automatically added when upgrading
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

knoppix@0[knoppix]$ cat /etc/resolv.conf
search domain.actdsltmp
nameserver 192.168.0.1
nameserver 205.171.3.65

knoppix@0[knoppix]$ lsmod | grep -i usb
usblp 10752 0
usbnet 12808 2 rndis_host,cdc_ether
usbcore 102912 6 usblp,rndis_host,cdc_ether,usbnet,uhci_hcd

Thanks for any help!!
