nonsense.  1721 + wic-1adsl:

I'm on ADSL2+.
That leaves me with the Cisco 877 AFAIK.
There is also a Viking PCI ADSL2+ PPPoA card I could use, but getting that shipped to the UK is also very expensive.

no I don't think they can send minijumbo's.

try to config the modem as a router (if it will route v6?  i guess
isp's point is that none of 'em will)

try alternate firmware like

search for USB DSL modem support in Unixes (might have to use other
than NetBSD) and run your modem in USB mode where you terminate the
PPPoA on an ATM stack in the unix.

but honestly cisco is almost certain to work and the others are all

I concurr.
I think I'll just have to live with the modem and save up for a Cisco :/
