    I assume that the nic was detected at install and the right
    module loaded. If this is correct, then it depends on whether
    you have a static IP or a dynamic one. As root run
    redhat-control-network and configure as the case may be. Some
    ppl have to use PPPoE. If you have to use this then a google
    search of this newgroup should lead to an adequate answer.

    Funny enough, I wrote earlier that it was a "Nextel" modem, Doh! This
    is actually a Westell modem that I got from BellSouth.

    FYI, I have a Linksys 10 base T card that is picked up for some reason
    as a Dec21 ethernet card on eth0. This is also configured as DHCP and
    seems to work fine configured this way.

    Once my network card was getting detected properly, all I had to do
    was to enter the IP of the modem into the browser. This took me to a
    log in page that I could use to connect and I was in!

    Thank you for your help!
