My ADSL connection uses a program called winpoet in windows. Is there a program like this for Linux? I really don't like switching between Linux and Windows whenever I need to get on the net.

I think you need PPPOE (PPP Over Ethernet) to get it your ADSL connection to work in Linux. A quick web search turned up http://www.suse.de/~bk/PPPoE-project.html, which looks to have some good pointers to more information about PPPOE.

NTS Enternet 300 is another PPPoE client, and it is available in Linux form from http://www.nts.com . It's kind of pricey at $30, but there is a 30-day trial download. My ISP used to distribute WinPoET, but it's switched over to Enternet 300 as it is more reliable. Another point of possible interest from the website: Efficient Networks, a big maker of ADSL modems, is apparently in the process of acquiring NTS (Network TeleSystems). I'm almost tempted to wonder if upcoming versions of Enternet 300 will support Efficient Networks modems only.

The best program to use for PPPoE is from Roaring Penguin, it is a free (as in speech) utility, you can grab it from here: http://www.roaringpenguin.com/pppoe.html
