I hope you got it going but just in case you didn't or someone else
wondering the same thing.
Unless shings changed since I used it the cable connections are done a
lot simpler then dsl modem, you just set your network port to DHCP,
connect the ethernet cable to the modem and then you're connected. No
pppoe addon, account info or stuff like than needed.
