Currently, m0n0wall is an Ethernet-only product - no ISDN, dialup modem
nor USB device support (AFAICT).  It would be nice to add some of these
interfaces, especially for redundancy - many companies have an ISDN or
dialup link as a backup for when their main link goes down.

Many, many home and small business users have USB ADSL modems supplied
to them by the dopey twats at their ISP.  USB is meant for keyboards and
mice, not modems!  (Yes, USB ADSL support is a good idea for m0n0wall.)
