    Question Linux & USB?!?!

    Hi, I'm waiting for the installation of a cable connection to the net.

    The thing is, I think the cable modem they are installing is USB, so for the really dumb question : Does Linux supports USB? I was thinking about installing the cable modem at my linux box and use it as a gateway / firewall to the internet.

    Well if it doesn't can I do the opposite? I was thinking that if I would share the internet connection at my XP box, and adding something like ( I just know the command at dos, but I think is similar) route add 0.0.0.0 mask 0.0.0.0 192.168.0.1 will it work?!

    thanks for the help.


    Again, soory if I wrote something wrong, Portuguese here!

    Yes to both. What version of Linux are you using?

    This link might help you about the USB issue http://www.linuxdoc.org/HOWTO/DSL-HOWTO/

    As for adding the route, it is similar to the windows concept:

    route add default netmask 0.0.0.0 192.168.0.1
