If the modem supports only ethernet bridging, you run a pppoe client on
your Linux machine - an easy thing to do. I believe Eircom's ethernet
modem works this way. This means if you're doing any connection sharing
or firewalling it must be done on your Linux desktop.
When you're shopping for these bits and pieces, you have to be very
careful about exactly what you're buying. Most devices sold as
"DSL/Cable routers" don't have any modem in them - that's separate. SMC
have two models of Barricade router, one with and one without an ADSL
modem built in.
