I haven't had any direct experience trying to set up USB DSL modems with
SBS. From posts I've read, they can be problematic. A DSL modem with an

Allied DSL for Telefonica
Telefonica SA, the leading telecommunications operator in the
Spanish-speaking world, has signed a million dollar deal with Allied Data
Technologies in partnership with its Spanish distributor Iberica.
Jeroen van Eersel, Vice President Sales & Marketing, Allied Data
Technologies, says. "The 'KIT ADSL USB' is a strategically important product
for Telefonica. Although Telefonica already had an ADSL product, it did not
have an ADSL device with USB connection. Including the CopperJet 800 in this
new package significantly expands Telefonica's consumer market offer. Our
CopperJet 800 is built upon the highly integrated Texas Instruments
AU5-chipset to meet all the high performance and feature rich demands for
the fast growing ADSL market."
The order involves the delivery of Allied Data's CopperJet 800 modem within
the next six months. The CopperJet 800 will be included in the ADSL
subscription package, also known as 'KIT ADSL USB', of Telefonica and will
be sold via the Telefonica outlets throughout Spain. The order was the
result of an intensive co-operation between Allied Data Technologies and its
largest distributor in Spain, Iberica de Control y Telefonica, SA (ICT).
