You are correct in the sense that I was making general comments and not
really addressing the OP's specific problems at all. Yes, quite
probably it is user error rather than TW producing a completely
non-sensical setup. (I didn't say TW's setup wouldn't work, only that
it didn't seem to conform to the appropriate standards.)
Not knowing *anything* about how TW's cable network works, nor having
any detailed debugging information, all I can do is reiterate the old
mantra to the OP:
1) Tell us exactly what you did.
2) Tell us exactly what happened.
3) Tell us what you expected to happen.
4) Tell us why you think what happened was inconsistent with your
actions in (1).
And when I say "tell" I mean /cut'n'paste relevant bits of config files/
and /show us what the output on your screen or in your log files was/.
