You dont need to use what your isp provide, adsl modem/routers are
really cheap these days and they give you the convenience of ethernet
presentation to your computers. Ive been using a cheap connexant 4 port
router with UTVs clicksilver. I just set the router up to do straight
pass through and I pay an extra few pound for a /29 from UTV so each
machine has its own static ip, everything I've tried works (ipv6 etc).
Personally, I prefer this than messing around with dodgy usb modems,
