internal adsl card

hi i have had loads of hardware and network probles over the weekend and due to this the network is getting a compleat overhaul, what the network was originally set up as is all workstations where linux, my server is slackware 10 and my computer that actually connected to the internet was windows 2000 advanced server with ISA wever on it! however now i am putting the ADSL card in the slackware sever can any one tell me how it would be configured and does an internal DSL card cause the same problems as a win modem in linux?

thanks for any help

It depends on your type of card. I had an AVM Fritz!DSL card once as it came for free together with an ADSL contract, but the linux drivers for it really sucked. First they were done for one distribution only (SuSE) which I don't use, and they were extremely unstable. I finally made a deal with a windows user, he gave me his DSL LAN modem and I gave him the Fritz!DSL in exchange... DSL LAN modems work beautifully in linux (had it running after 30 seconds) and Fritz!DSL has really awesome windows drivers, so we both were happy. I suggest you get a LAN modem too if your internal card doesn't come with good drivers...

better DSL performance?

Will it be (even if it's slightly) better performance if you use an internal DSL card?

I have this cheap DLINK modem what you can just plug in and use in both linux and windows with pppoe.
Also the web admin panel, snmp is disabled by default. It doesn't even have an own IP so monitoring ATM parameters is not possible with them.

I could buy a DSL card but what's the best DSL adapter with linux in 2010?

I also had such D-link dsl internal modem, the model is dsl-100.
Are you able to use in linux? I only have the windows driver.

There are not much new model of DSL internal adapter, I also had some from 3com but that already many years ago.
