=> =What makes you think we have a driver for this?

=> The en(4) manual page and the description of this product (on the
=> page above) as one based on Efficient Network's chip. Can there be
=> anything else?

=I'd be dubious.. the en driver was for an old expensive ATM card from
='95 or so.. even though the ad says it supports PPPoE among other
=things, I'd be pretty surprised if we could talk to it..

=(surprises do happen though)

So, back to the original question -- am I likely to have to any problems
with natd and ipfw dealing with this non-Ethernet interface -- assuming
en-driver attaches to this card at all?

Any other ATM card I should consider as an internal DSL modem? Thanks!
