ADSL / VPN

We're having an ADSL line installed soon and we pretty much want to facilitate the use of VPN.

ADSL line has a static IP & Cisco Pix has 3DES licenses.

INTERNET >>> MODEM >>> CISCO PIX 501 >> LAN

At the moment we need a recommendation of an adsl modem without the extras (such as firewall, dhcp), as the cisco pix will do this. It has to have an ethernet port to connect to the cisco firewall. Overall, we just need a modem which passes the static ip address directly to the the firewall.

I have looked at the Dlink DSL-300G and it sounds reasonably good. Can anyone confirm if this is suitable for my scenario especially with VPN.

Alcatel is very common. Ask your DSL provider to include the modem with the service. That makes it much easier if they provide and configure it for you, and just hand you off an Ethernet port.

That D-Link looks like it should work just fine. Since it is marketed specifically to the UK, I would assume it works there.

what is particuarly interesting about alcatel speed touch home is the fact that it is nearly identical to ST Pro, a much more expensive piece of hardware. If that is what you have, there is an easy way to crack ST Home to ST Pro and unlock many more functions such as CIP, PPP

I know with the SpeedTouch 530 it has a built-in firewall feature. Is it possible to disable this? (in case it interfers with the vpn traffic)

The 530 is a DSL Gateway, not just the modem. Check with the carrier and see what they would provide for you. If they try to give you an ActionTec modem, decline it. If they offer a Cisco product, jump on it.

MAke sure it has a DSL port a lot of routers who advertise being DSL/Cablemodem routers or DSL/Cablemodem compatible are really just routers with a 4 port switch and a routable UPLINK/MDX port

As for the 530 Speedtouch, can you disable the firewall?
