An ethernet NIC will not work in this way. However, you can purchase an
internal ADSL modem, which looks like a NIC to the operating system, but
has a phone line jack connector.
Beware of using a internal ADSL modem with FreeBSD. Unless it
impersonates one of the ethernet chipsets perfectly, it won't work.
