ubuntu-friendly broadband?

I don't know the US situation, but in germany every DSL provider offers some
router with a new contract, for example the AVM fritz box which does wlan,
router, dsl mode, voip gateway all in once, or similar hardware.

if you don't mind spending a few extra dollar, ask your dsl company for
such a deal. if it works, you won't have any pain, as local machines
including your ubuntu system can simply use dhcp to get a ip from that
router and use it to connect to the internet. that is very, very painless.

often dsl providers already pre-configure the dsl router with your userdata,
so you don't even need to enter that, but only plug it in and everything

good luck!
