That part I'm not sure about I'm afraid, but I guess that it should work
somehow  as I think it mostly just passes on the PPPoE, but it's not
something I've had a chance to try yet I'm afraid.

No problem, in some ways I still prefer my old speedtouch usb modem :)
On the other hand it would've been nice if m0n0/pfsense supported the
sangoma s518 card I got a while ago, due to lack of time I've not been
able to try implementing it myself.
