 ADSL
Author: Jeremy Heatherington

I was wondering if anyone has successfully setup adsl and freebsd. I am new at freebsd and was wondering how I would go about setting it up so I have access to the internet. So help would greatly be appreciated.

Most ADSL connections are just simple ethernet connections. If you have a home network, set up your freebsd box to be a gateway. Have two NICs in the box, one connected to the DSL line, the other to your hub. Everything connects to the hub. See the topology link above for an example.

I use ADSL here. It's pretty easy. Nothing special at all. If you have a static IP address, it's easier. Otherwise, get DHCP going.

If your ISP uses PPPoE for ADSL check out:
