Dear CG,

If I where you I would google for the option to tweak your modem. I did
this with my Alcatel Speedtouch ADSL modum and now have a modem that
knows how to connect to my ISP. I find this ideal. There's an option to
use a natd router or you can just route packages though you Gateway. I
did the later, but this is a bit difficult (if you don't know how). By
the way I have no experiance with PPPOE and use PPTP instead.
