Hmm... I remember hearing about some crackful protocol that Windows can 
speak to firewalls saying "please open a hole up for me now". Perhaps 
that has the effect of initiating a connection over ADSL, though I 
thought ADSL modems tried to run always-connected. If you can find out 
what needs to be done, and document it in the wiki as a feature 
proposal, we can take a view on supporting it for a future release.
