wait, why not just take the ethernet cable from the inside interface on
your existing modem, connect it to a 2nd 'outside' NIC on your BSD box
with a driver that's known to work, and save $100+ on a new modem?
you mentioned "cabling inconvenience" before, but i don't see enough
inconvenience to warrant > $100 expenditure. maybe i missed something,
wouldn't be the first time... but i'm doing DSL with ipfw/natd at home
using multiple NICs (outside, inside, wireless)... and it works well.
