I recently moved house and had my DSL connection downgraded to a cable connection. Anyway my Linux laptop is configured for a DSL connection. When I slip in the cat5 cable and try to connect to the net it wont let me in new house. The problem is I'm very new to Linux and I dont know the command for configuring a connection. I could configure the DSL connection using pppoeconf, but I dont know how to do it for a cable connection.
EDIT: I suspect the problem is that the machine is expecting a dsl connection. I am online now using a Win7 netbook which didn't need any configuring to switch.
