There is a card but it's expensive... Sangoma is the manuf - think it's
canadian from memory. Apart from that there's nothing about which is
See my earlier posting at
Think as the card is expensive, an adsl router/modem on ethernet is the best
option. We've got an Alcatel 510 v.4 Bit of a different problem though, as i
really wanted the router to route both multiple public IPs and perform NAT.
Apparantly this does it, though is brand new - hence we have no configs to
reference from, and are stuck! Hence we're just using it to route the public
IPs through, and NAT-ing off of a NetBSD box (like icecream, it's good to
mix different flavours ;-)
If you're happy to NAT of a computer/are only connecting up 1 (whcih i doubt
as you're on this mailing list!) then take a look at dabs.com There's a
generic "dabsvalue" Connextant ethernet router modem - 1 or 4 port versions.
I just ordered 2 of the 4 ports. Supposed to support multiple public IPs in
the routing table, and excessively cheap!
