 Subject:  Re: [m0n0wall] How to connect usb gsm modem to m0n0wall

I am not aware of any USB GSM modems compatible with FreeBSD (which 
does not mean a lot, though)

There are GS Modems available with WiFi or regular cable connections.

The biggest issue will however most probably be that most GSM Internet 
connections are already NATed. Right, you've got no public IP. No need 
to worry about putting the something in "Modem" or "bridge" mode, as 
incoming connections will be blocked off by the ISP anyway.

Only very few ISP provide "real" Internet access, with a public IP. 
These will typically provide you with their own modem hardware.
