Media1 is offering cable modem service in my area. It sounds
like a very nice deal -- megabit speeds and I can be connected
all the time. Does anyone have expierence with Media1 and/or
They use DHCP to configure Windows boxes. I think I could use dhcpd
under Linux and they wouldn't notice the difference. How mature
is Linux's DHCP? Is there any reason why Linux's implementation
might not work with Media1?
I contacted Media1 months ago and never heard back from them.
Same story from a coworker of mine. Initial installation
is fairly pricy and I'm leery of the cable industy's reputation
for customer service to begin with.
Thought I'd see what you guys knw before I take the plunge.
