Still I would need a ATMF25 adapter for it, and I don't see this available
in online stores (not talking about docs to write a driver). I could
also get a PCI or USB ADSL modem for this x86 box, but again I would
need docs for write a driver, and this doesn't seem that easy to get.

No, all ADSL infrastructure I know off here are using the same setup:
L2TP or ATM on the provider's end, ADSL-to-whatever on your end.

The situation I'm in currently isn't optimal, but AFAIK it's the best
compromise I can get for my usage.
