Choosing a modem for freebsd 7.0
Okay I am getting ready to purchase an ADSL modem for my FreeBSD 7.0 box and would like to get some recommendations.
From what I understand you have to get a modem which is connected to the computer via the ethernet port rather than a USB modem. But I am unsure as to how you configure such a device, do you do it through a web browser?
So what do you guys recommend?
Thanking you in advance,
Whoever supplies your DSL service should provide a modem. But most of the ADSL or Cable modems are configured via some type of web browser based interface. These modem usually have both ethernet and usb connection, IMO it is easier to use the ethernet interface than usb.

I got a self-install DSL kit (ip, netmask, modem) and researched
enlessly pppoe confs in ppp.conf etc until I accidentally
discovered that a simple
then a # route................
supplanted ppp.conf for that ISP and that Ethernet modem.
since history is saved across reboots, I don't even bother yet
putting it in rc.conf, just typing
and zsh autocompletes...
