Hello all ,
I just set up a FreeBSD box to access Optus Cable , The modem is a Motorola SB 4101 .
it took me a while reading this article and i was getting no where , till i rang the telco and i asked them a non OS question ( i knew they wouldn't like to talk to me if i told them what OS i was using) they told me if i wanted to change the PC it was connected to all i have to do is unplug the the power from the modem for 20 sec , change the ethernet cable to the new PC and turn the modem back on. The telco told me that the modem learns the first MAC address that it sees .
now u can do the rest
dhcp on the ethernet card attached to the cable modem in rc.conf ,
blah blah ....
