I can't figure out how to get Puppy to recognize my cable connection (Motorola SBG900) via USB. When I run Damn Small Linux from the CD it recognizes the conection via USB no problem. I much prefer Puppy, which I have installed on the hard drive of this old laptop. I much appreciate any suggestions. Thanks.

Go to this site:
ftp://ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/

and download this package:
modules-2.4.29-complete.tar.gz

extract the CDCEther module (this module adds USB support for your modem).

Put the file CDCEther.o anywhere (I have mine /root/CDCEther.o)

open a console and at the command line: insmod /root/CDCEther.o

now run the Ethernet/network wizard by:
clicking Start --> Setup --> Ethernet/network Wizard

Press the button that looks like eth0 (maybe yours is slightly different?)

Then press the Auto DHCP or similar looking button

Press EXIT

Done. You are now online.

You probably ought to add the line to /etc/rc.d/rc.local (open as text file): insmod /root/CDCEther.o (or whatever the pathname you have put the module at)

That will automatically load the module at boot. You'll still have to run the Ethernet/network wizard though after every re-boot, but it only takes like 5 seconds to push the buttons. THere's a way to automate this too probably but I havent looked into it yet. Anybody want to suggest?

Now come on back and post a response in this thread and tell me how it went!

Your instructions worked perfectly! Thanks much. And, yes, if anyone else knows of a way to script autoDHCP I would be interested.
