I'm using the usb (so not the pci version) version of an alcatel
speedtouch adsl modem. Most of the info I found at, but in the ports there seems to be version of
the pppoa program too (see below). My modem works very fine with the
programs and installation instructions found at the
site. They even have a FreeBSD version of the program and specific fbsd
installation notes.

/usr/ports>make search key="alcatel"
Port:   pppoa-1.2b2,1
Path:   /usr/ports/net/pppoa
Info:   Run PPP over Alcatel's USB Speedtouch device
Maint:  ports at
Index:  net

Hope this can help you.
