i have tried to install ntl broadband for my sister, alls fine till we get to the point of connecting to ntl broadband. we get an error message that says (error:148 - 2 network adaptors in system and both are configured with DHCP but neither can renew an IP address). what does this mean?. having trouble getting through to ntl.
make sure that internet connection sharing is not enabled .... that really mucks registering to ntl up. It took me, 2 ntl engineers and a couple of new modems to work that out. The message received was similar to what you are describing and disabling it sorted the problem ... thought it worth checking.
Just a thought..... how are you connecting your cable modem to the pc, USB or Ethernet. I would recommend using ethernet as the USB is not as stable. If you dont have an ethernet port then a PCI card is approx £10, plus it frees up a USB port.
