I'm sorry but this isn't the case. Only DSL modems that are routers aswell do this internally. If you just have a standard ethernet modem then you will have to run some sort of pppoe over it (whether it is an actual pc or a separate hardware router, doesn't matter) to connect to telstra's DSL network. Also another option is to run pppoA instead but thats fairly similar in the setup.The modem should do this internally. Perhaps you should use a more Linux-friendly provider?
