Connect ASA to AT&T Uverse

Hello,
Do you know if you can connect a Cisco ASA's "outside" interface directly to the DSL line of an AT&T U-Verse connection?
I know that I used to be able to connect my Cisco ASA to a standard DSL connection, using PPPoE as Layer 2.
But I am thinking that maybe you cannot do this with AT&T U-Verse, because it may use a different Layer 2 protocol or Layer 2 physical connect.
Thanks

Yes, it is a standard Ethernet connect.

You can connect the Cisco ASA to an PPoE DSL Modem. The ASA will dial the connection as a normal connection!

Hello elultimodesconocido:
I have connected an ASA directly to the Internet without a DSL Modem using PPPoE, but that was for ADSL.

I heard that the AT&T U-Verse is not ADSL, but is another form of DSL that may force me to use AT&T's DSL Modem/Router/Firewlall, which is what I do not want to do.

Thanks

I already said yes, it is a standard Ethernet connection.

Here is a forum that talks about it:

A better more direct path to take is you can always call them up to confirm.
