I'm new to cable broadband. I have setup my laptop using the CD provided. The cable modem activated to the network and internet is working fine on the laptop via wifi.
On that laptop I run VMware Workstation with a number of VM's. The VM is connected via ethernet using NAT to the host (laptop). It shows in the system tray internet access. When I try and go to a web page it takes me to the bigpond cable register landing page. That page states "You already have an account registered to this modem, do you want to unregister" I click no and it reverts back to the same page.
How do I give the VM internet access? Do I need to add all the VM's MAC to an access list? I'm suprised that it is so difficult to setup more than one computer to a cable modem. I never had such issues with my ADSL modem.
I've not tried a 2nd laptop yet hopefully it doesn't do the same thing!
