Yep.  BY still supply modems with an ethernet connection facility so it 
really is that simple.

There is a usb connection too on the same modem but I have no idea 
whether there is a USB linux driver for it, nor whether it is included 
in smoothie or MNF.  I'd say even if there is one existing it probably 
isn't included.
