Question Problems Installing USB ADSL Ethernet Router in Mandrake 9.1

Hi, i am planning to setup a dedicated firewall and server box using Mandrake 9.1, all has gone well up till now. I have just bought a generic USB v2 ADSL Ethernet Router, it was from an electronics store in New Zealand called Dick Smith Electronics, and is their label. ( )

Default Router Settings are:
Router IP address:
Subnet mask:
VPI: 0
VCI: 100
ATM Service Category: UBR
Encapsulation: PPPoA VC-Mux
DNS Proxy Selection: Auto Discovery + User Configured
Trellis: Enabled
Handshake Protocol: Autosense - G.dmt first
Wiring Selection: Tip/Ring
Bit Swapping: Disabled

I have been into Mandrake Control Center and used drakconnect to setup the ADSL internet connection, but when it comes to the selection of modem, i am at a loss with which one to choose. My router isn't there, so i am wondering if there are drivers out there which will work with my Router. If yes, also how to install these drivers and get this setup.

Thanks in advance
