USB Cable Modem
« on: December 23, 2007, 06:55:52 pm »
I don't have dual ethernet on my server, and all my PCI slots are filled.  Is there any chance that I can use one ethernet and a USB cable modem?  Any assistance would be appreciated.  Thanks.

That's different! hmm I'd bet the cable modem shows up as a NIC
I'd bet that it would work, you'd have to make sure the cable modem was plugged in DURING the install

If that is indeed how it senses the cablemodem, then you have 2 nics.  all is good..

Try it, let us know how it works!
