USB Cable Modem

I have a machine with both Windows and Linux installed on it.

My cable internet provider gave me a USB Cable Modem and told me that they do not support Linux.



I read that USB is experimental on Linux and that the modem and the OS may work together but I am not experienced enough to do this kind of thing on my own.

Can some one give me directions on how to get Linux to use it?



Thank you

    RedHat 7 ships with usb support, but it's limited to mice and keyboards. Most devices(like the ones we use), are not supported yet, and I'd be surprised if yours is.

    Maybe you can write your own driver for it though.
