Does RH 9 recognize your ethernet card? If it does there'll be a module loaded for it and you 'll see the module in the output of 'lsmod'. The card will also be listed in /proc/pci.

In many cases disabling PnP mode in the system BIOS is helpful in getting Linux to talk to devices. Check and see if you have that option in the BIOS setup.

Hrmm, this is a bit odd. I am using Adelphia powerlink on my linux box and everything is fine... Can you paste the results of the "ifconfig eth0" command? (assuming that eth0 is your ethernet card) Also, could you tell me which modem you have and the model number written on the bottom? Also, i will need to know if your redhat box is connected directly to the modem, or if it uses a router.
