Thumbs down WESTELL ADSL USB modem

Hello all,
I have got a problem with subj. My Internet provider (BTclick UK) provided us with ADSL line and WESTELL USB modem. This modem has only two sockets one for USB and the other for ADSL line. Provider told us that they do not support Linux at all :-(. Please advice is there any ways of connecting subj to the Internet under Red Hat 8.0 or shell we buy another modem? If , yes which one would be the best choice?

Thanks to all
And marry xmas

Thumbs down nobody here knows nothing

hmmm. these Linux guys seem to know nothing about USb DSL modems. The great Linux operating system doesn't seem to have any real support for DSL modems.
