The Alcatel SpeedTouch ADSL modem has been tested and appears to work,
although may need further testing so I would class it as beta :)

For the main page and download of package go to:

They were very kind to give credits too :)

Notice, that there seems to be an issue with calling ioctl() with
USB_SET_TIMEOUT on a control endpoint, if your kernel is compiled with
DIAGNOSTIC. It will always fail even though the man page specifies you
can always set TIMEOUT.

Unfortunately the 1.5 kernel has DIAGNOSTIC on in GENERIC but I believe
that is changed for 1.5.1?

So you can either run it without TIMEOUT support (seems to be fine) or
re-compile the kernel without DIAGNOSTIC.

Majority of the work, and thanks, should go to 

     Benoit Papillault who wrote the linux version. 
     François Rogler who try to package the BSD version. 
     Richard Tobin who wrote the pusb library for FreeBSD
