I tried configuring one of these things for FreeBSD. The web page
directions were extremely simple, with the minor problem that they, ahh,
didn't work. (Even had a bit on UK connections - I'm in the UK.) I never
did get it to work right.

I am now using a Speedtouch 510, which does the connection itself, and can
be confitured using a web interface (it was *easier* to configure using the
web interface via FreeBSD than using its custom application on Windows!) or
even by telneting directly to the device - ah, bliss ;-)
