    Default New User!

    Hello, I've been browsing this forum for awhile. Interested in testing my own wireless internet penetration. I have BT installed on a boot and sucessfully able to boot it up. I've been toying with it for awhile and it seems I can't get the internet to work on it. As of now I have a cable modem that hooks into my computer through a jack.
    I bought a router off newegg which will get here in a day or so I can put DD-WRT on it.

    I am unable to find a way to access my internet through my cable modem. I'm a quick learner and after I get internet on BT then I can read some tutorials.

    Can you give me a quick run down on how to do that? Sorry, I'm new to linux but if I get the internet running I can read tutorials to help better understand it.

    You have internet running now, so there is nothing stopping you reading those tutorials and other threads and posts now rather than asking to be spoonfed the answers.
