If the modem connects via ethernet then you should be fine, is it's a USB connection then you may have problems.

Verizon DSL with the free Westel modem has worked "out-of-the-box" for me. Never had a problem with it.

I am on Verizon w/Westell modem and I went through hell trying to get RH connected(running slack now). For me thay use dhcp not pppoe. Verizon tech support was no help either, as soon as they heard "Linux" I think the vertigo set in.

This is what I has to do.
From windows run "ipconfig /all" - without qoutes.
write down all information i.e. IP address,Subnetmask, Default Gateway...
boot into RH and put in these values.
connect.

It has always worked for me.

Well for me it uses pppoe, but I'll try that anyway.
