No. That's probably a V.90/V.92 modem and is not compatible with DSL...

I suggest you invest in a router/modem like this one: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B...teway&v=glance

Cheers,

Then you will need to buy a compatible ADSL modem.. Any from here should work fine: http://www.linuxadsl.co.uk/

Oh, I get it... You want to _build_ your own ADSL modem, instead of using a prebuilt one (like the majority of other people - make that almost everyone)?

Sorry, I can't help you there... But enjoy building it


I would just set up a Linux box with something like IPCop, buy an ADSL modem, connect the two and then use that as my network's gateway. But, if you really want to do that, then... go ahead!

The actual signal conversion is done by specialized integrated circuits. With modem/routers linux is used for functions like port fowarding, NAT etc. Building a modem from scratch would not be an easy project for a begineer. I would purchase a manufactured modem and then use a linux computer as the gateway/router.
