help me to connect internet by 2514

I have one 2514(2*ethernet+2*serial), one mini hub, 2 PCs, I use rogers cable(toronto) connect internet, now I have to put two NICs in my PC, I want to use 2514 to get the IP from ISP, because the ISP bind the MAC and IP together, so if one of ethernet port connect with the cable modem and get an IP from dhcp server, how to release the IP and how the other PCs connect internet by the ethernet port? thanks

On the ethernet port that is connected to Cable modem,

conf term

ethernet x

ip address dhcp

mac-address xxxx.xxxx.xxxx <===the mac of PC.

"sh ip interface brief" will indicate the ip address received from the cable provider...

Re: help me to connect internet by 2514

thanks a lot

after "ip addr dhcp" works, get the IP from ISP, how to release it? just release it from PC(because same MAC)?

I don't want to try, if i can't release the gotten IP from 2514, maybe i would have trouble.
