Hello, repollo of repollo

Here's your question:
> How to connect to the internet using my dsl external modem

We don't know. It is extremely unlikely someone can advise you without knowing what modem you have there. I'd say even it is impossible.
Different modems require different handling. Some have PPPoE built in, some don't. Some have built-in routers and NAT. Some work over USB, some over ethernet. And so on.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one or the same forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
