LEAS YVAN and Rasobasi420,
Those were my first thoughts as well. I've yet to come across a situation where a cable connection required any ssort of login. However, not knowing
who or what type of "cable" service he had I went the route of a supposed PPPoE connection.
I, too, wondered if he may actually have a DSL/ADSL connection, many of which do require initial logOn authentication.
Lord, I don't think I can count the number of times I've had to instruct a client to do Xactly as you stated above, and it only gets worse if
there's a wireless range extender involved. Worse as in ... more steps in the process. I typcially OverEmphasize
the need to bring everything back
up EXACTLY as I have outlined in the instructions.
Hopefully our concerted efforts help to resolve iCEdTenG's problem/situation.
