    Yes, I'm doing it right now with the Linksys WUSB54G V4.3 using the Ralink chipset.

    Well, it all depends on what drivers you need for your modem, if you plug it in and it is detected and works then, good. If it doesnt, you will need to search for the drivers and install them

    Do you have a device at all? If so, what is the exact make, model and version? If you don't and decide to purchase a WUSB54G v4 Linksys adapter, I'll be happy to assist you in getting it configured.

    I'm not gonna say it's true for all, but my experience has been ADSL USB routers/modems and Linux seldom play well together. If you could use a regular adsl modem that can hook to a pci NIC via a cat 5 cable, then you could be in business. I'm afraid I can't help at all with an ADSL USB router. Sorry.

    So, you got an external USB wireless NIC ?
