Alcatel Speedtouch under Gentoo linux


This is my first How-to so bear with me 🙂

This guide is written for people who want to use an old Alcatel Speedtouch ADSL modem under linux. The first part of the guide will tell you how to set up the uplink using the modem. After that, I’ll explain how to turn the gentoo machine which controls the uplink into a internet router.

Note: this is a copy from the original article I posted on Gentoo Wiki. By now there might be differences in the content but this is the original.
