Unhappy Please help... IPcop with internal DSL PCI modem, SpeedStream 3021

Hi, I'm an intermediate Linux user and here's my question:

I'm trying to get IPcop (afaik it's related to SmoothWall) to work with an internal DSL PCI modem, specifically a "SpeedStream 3021" by "Efficient Networks".

IPcop comes with built-in support for some internal DSL PCI modems, I don't know well enough how to tell from the command-line if it's recognizing the modem or not.

The reason I'm setting it up this way is because I have an external DSL modem but I want IPcop on a separate box for firewall and mostly for content filtering (DansGuardian). I was going to try to get the external router to forward requests to the IPcop for filtering but I don't think it's real possible, at least nobody seems to be doing it that way, so then I turned to installing an internal DSL modem into the IPcop and just using my other modem as a switch / wireless hub.

Here's my specs...

IPcop v. 1.4.13
SpeedStream 3021 modem
phone line DSL
Pentium MMX, 200MHz, 48MB RAM, 6GB Hard Drive, internal NIC and DSL modem

What I need is a driver for the IPcop to support the modem.

Whatever details you need that I left out, just ask!

Thanks in advance for your help!

You can work on getting the DSL modem working but it is not necessary with 2 nics in the linux box. If your external modem is capable, you can set it to bridged mode. Without bridge mode you could still use it as a firewall by connecting the outside nic of ipcop to the dsl modem, the only problem with this is you would be doing double nat (a pain if you are port forwarding anything).
