[brluglist] Unannounced Cox network changes...??

Cox has reconfigured something. I am running Windoz 98 SE and the cable
stopped working yesterday. I called and the tech did something on his end
to correct the problem - something to do with DHCP, I think.
If you were in the early conversion from Jan. 23-30, it appears that they
configured your modem for the transition - not the permanent version of Cox!
At least that's what the tech told me.
Even the Level 1 tech's know about the problem.

I dunno.... Like I said, cable was working fine over here on both sides,
now dhcp is failing on the linux side only. Note that this is the SAME
machine running win98/mandrake8.0....

Linux seems to be running fine on cable here (didn't want to say cox,
because it just didn't sound right...) But I also have a router in between
me and it....
Could be something about their DHCP and your flavor linux.... Who knows
OK folks, do you know what's up? I have a dual boot system that uses
cox internet service. They're network configurations were essentially the
same and were the cox reccommended settings (for windoze). I've had both
systems ticking along nicely, until tonight. The Linux networking is down
over here while windows is up. I can only guess that an unnannounced
configuration change has occurred... Anybody knows what gives ? Thanks,
