India has an ISP named Hathway which provides connection through cable modems. The cable modem is connected through a CAT6 cable to the computer.
It is surprising that while MS Windows is able to connect with the internet and get to the page named login.hathway.com, for accessing the internet, Ubuntu fails to even procure the IP as a DSL connection. Attempt to connection with DHCP based setting have also failed.
I have also tried using
sudo pppoeconf and it fails to detect the DSL modem and the connection therein.
Any clues on this mystery?
