I am having a problem now that i have no idea how to fix. I just had my comcast internet service reactivated, it was shut off due to non payment. Now that they turned it back on I cannot connect to the net in Mint. Whenver I pull open a web browser, i get a page that says the OS is not supported. It is trying to download and install the windows internet connection wizard software. The funny thing is, that when they originally set up my net connection they installed the software on windows and after they left I switched to mint and all was good.
However, now, since the reactivation, i get this problem in mint. But when I load into Vista it works as if nothing has changed. I didnt have to reinstall the software or nothing.
I am also using a linksys router. If anyone has had this similar experience and can help me that would be greate.
I have done a little research and have read that they have to activate the modem with the MAC address, however this shouldnt be the case as like I said it works in vista. I jstu cant seem to get away from this page when laucnhing any broweser in mint.
No matter what website i try to access i get the same page saying the OS is not supported.
There has to be some way to get around using this windows installation software and manually set up the connection. But like i said i have no idea as to how to do it.
Since windows is working as if nothing has changed wouldnt you think that Mint should do the same thing?
Anyways., please someone help me
