3. Service Settings

After successfully completing the installation of the Network Interface Card you will need to verify that your computers TCP/IP settings have been correctly set. TCP/IP is the communication protocol that your computer uses to communicate with the Internet. You must have TCP/IP installed and properly configured in order to access the Cox High Speed Internet service. Your Cox High Speed Internet installation disk should have automatically configured these settings. It is, however, a good idea to verify that these properties are correct.

If your computer is already part of a network, you must modify the network configuration on your computer in order to connect to Cox High Speed Internet.
This involves one of the following actions:
  • Change your computers configuration, disconnect from the network, then connect to Cox High Speed Internet.
  • Use another computer which is not connected to the network to connect to Cox High Speed Internet.
Use the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) service to obtain the
following items:
  • IP Address
  • Default gateway
  • Domain Name Service (DNS) address.

Cox HSI does not officially support the Linux operating system. However, the service works quite well (some say even better) under Linux. For help setting up your Linux system to use Cox HSI, please visit our All Things Unix forum.
