That would be for a simple ADSL modem without a built-in router, right?

I didn't have to do anything like that for my ADSL (which is through a
modem/router).  I just set the router IP address as my default gateway,
and that was it (I run my own DNS servers).  If my ethernet card was
configured by a DHCP server, I wouldn't have even had to set the
gateway, the router would have done that all for me.

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
