    cable modem works with usb but not ethernet

    i hope i post this in the right forum section pls move if its not the right section.

    ever since i got my cable hooked up about a year ago it has been hooked up through USB.. from reading thought thread.. people say it is better throught the ethernet for better speed. i did some test from speakeasy.net and im getting like 4139kbps download and 361kbps upload. hopefully switching to ethernet will make it faster. the problem is everytime i try to connect through ethernet it keep saying aquiring addressing and then it doesnt work. i tried turning off the firewall and still the same thing. my driver for the modem is the latest version. i have comcast and my modem is a scentific atlanta dpc2100. im running on windows xp home edition SP2. pls help!

    well at leas t your "sorta" works hooking up the sb 5150 on the ethernet card LOCKED my comp up all together. No matter what I tried. So its usb for now.

    The only thing I can think of is that the nic I bought wasn't too expensive ($29.00cdn). its a Dlink. Well hope your situation worksout better
