I have set up PPPOE, and take it from me it is a great deal easier to
get a cable router. It's also easier to share the link if you don't have
to have one PC on whenever the others want to use the link.

It does seem, however, that the device he mentioned will do all he
needs, with no special software on the Linux side.
