Yes, I've seen my friend successfully running Hathway Broadband on Linux.
Is you ethernet card working on Linux? Sometimes they don't work out
of the box due to lack of drivers. Try running
dmesg | grep eth
on the terminal. If you don't get any output, it's most likely your
ethernet card doesn't have the drivers on Linux.
If that's not the problem, check the configuration again (maybe you
accidentally mistyped the IPs or something).
