DSL modems

There are three means that I know of to connect your PC to DSL. The first
is that the DSL modem has an ethernet port on it. Actually though most of
these are wired the same as an ethernet hub. (Thus if you then connect it
to a hub it needs to be in either the uplink port, or use a cross over
cable.) The next is a modem that connects via USB port. Then there are
internal varieties.

I would recomend that you ensure you get the ethernet variety. All others
depend on your OS to work properly.

If you're too open minded, your brains will fall out.
