how is the internet connecting to your machine? usb or ethernet ?

Im guessing since you are using usb as far as I understand adsl-setup is a scipt 
to make setting up a usb device easier 

you would find it alot easier if you have an ethernet device just put in the log in details over a web browser interface connect to your machine(s) via dhcp and it dose all the work for you

I dosnt care if the client attached of the bds linux mac skyOS (off topic has anyone tryed skyos)  windows BeOS or something you've roled yourself as long as its "talking " the correct standard
