The alcatel speedtouch USB thingy works with FreeBSD using pppoa (i think)
in ports.... worked a treat for me for most of the last year, apart from
dodgy usb behaviour by my motherboard (i blame VIA for being pants with a
capitol P for USB chipsets...).

If i were doing it again though, i'd get an external, standalone ADSL modem
that gave a nice ethernet interface on it's internal side, then OS support
is unimportant.
