Seeking ADSL Hardware reccomendation

Can anyone tell me some good ADSL hardware that has driver source code or drivers for RedHat Enterprise ES 3.0 (version 2.4.21-27.0.4.ELsmp) available?

I just stupidly acquired a Dynalink ALH110 which is "Linux Compatible" but they may as well have said "CP/M" compatible given that the only driver for this pile of poo is from last century, and I'm not willing to downgrade that far (not to mention; it's probably not an SMP driver anyhow).

Major thanks in advance for all help!!!

Is this Dynalink ADSL router/modem an ethernet model?

If it is, you don't need drivers at all. I live in South Africa, and I have a proprietary ADSL router that is ethernet based. Getting it working with RedHat 9 was as simple as setting the gateway and DNS server addresses - no drivers were required.

I have an etec (conexant) adsl modem/router with both usb and ethernet connections. That works fine for me.

The Dynalinx is an iTex chipset; itex don't release the source, appear to be in chapter 11 bankruptcy, and didn't answer my email.

My ADSL modem in an internal PCI.

I require an internal PCI; not any ethernet gadget (and I'd prefer not USB).

I've had several different ethernet things, and they all are screwing up under heavy P2P loads. I also have a complicated network (8 static IPs) and I need my router to be programmable so I can fully customize it and troubleshoot problems and monitor traffic properly.

I did some more hunting around, and it looks like there's some PCI gizmos running Connexant chipsets; eBay sellers don't normally put the chipset in their auctions unfortunately, so if anyone out there has a PCI ADSL modem with Linux driver source code, please let me know the brand name (and chipset)!!!
