DSL on Debian

AT&T has a $19.95/month el-cheapo deal for “Basic DSL” service that’s already several times faster than a dial-up modem. Of course, there’s the problem that I run Debian GNU/Linux on my boxes — an “unsupported” operating system, as far as the commercial ISPs are concerned. More here

There is abundant information available on the Net about DSL and Linux and so forth; you just have to find it. Unfortunately, there’s also lots of misinformation, and lots of just plain noise. So, in hopes of saving other people some of the work I’ve had to go through, I’m putting this record of my experience on the Web. Probably what I did will work for you if you use some Debian-based distribution like Ubuntu.

    I ran debian 3.0 woody with a DSL connection in 2002 for years. There are several Howtos that help lead one in the right direction. The point is I connected Debian boxes to ADSL networks eight years ago so it shouldn’t be too difficult to do them today.
