I've got BT ADSL set up on an old p166 and routing to my network. It's
very reliable it's just setting it up that is the problem. I cannot
comment on any of the non-standard modems you can get, but the alcatel
USB modem is good it is just very awkward to dial into it.
You need the alcatel driver mgmt.o a script to beam the driver to the
modem (the modem has flash memory and so need the driver beaming to it
every time you dial). You then need a dialing script which runs the
beamer program, dials into BT and searches for the IP address you
receive '217.*.*.*' and sets it up as a route. (It's also adviseable to
build a firewal script into this).
If this is applicable to you I could possibly send you all the files you
need and a little explanation on how to set it up.
P.S. to run this you need to have USB support and a few other things
built in to your kernel.
