Aahhh - you mean a PPPOE client?  It has this already.  I have my ADSL
router/modem running in bridge mode, meaning that m0n0wall takes care of
the PPPOE, not the modem.

If you mean does it have PCI ADSL modem support, I don't think it does,
and I agree that this would be nice.

But PCI ADSL drivers are a very different thing from a PPPOE client.  :)
