Charter Pipeline + OSX...

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
We signed up for Charter Pipeline cable internet service late last week, and bought a Motorola Surfboard 4200 cable modem ($30 after rebates). Besides Charter not calling me to get the MAC number when they said they would (grrr), I've found that their setup CD isn't OSX native. Can anyone give some pointers on connecting in OSX - easy? Hard? We're using the ethernet port, if it makes a difference.

Looking forward to a little less World Wide Wait -

    it's a snap. set it up to use DHCP and you'll be good to go in almost no time.

    i've set up multiple machines in OSX on cable modems now, all have gone off w/o a hitch.

    Cool, thanks. I hope that wasn't an overly stoopid question; our FP iMac was an upgrade from a Mac Classic running System 6.07, so I'm a wee behind the times!
