Ah, sorry. I missed that (some info in the report still referred to the 
release number for Sarge, which confused me).

Hmm. With that kind of speed having it supported would actually make 
sense. I'm reopening the report and reassigning it to ppp-udeb.

I don't think the current version of ppp-udeb is intended to support this 
kind of dial-up connection: it has been changed to focus on PPPoE.

Not sure if anyone will actually want to work on this though. If you'd 
like to give it a shot yourself, you're very welcome to do so of course.
AFAIK older versions of ppp-udeb _did_ support dial-up connections.

If that would be implemented again, it would probably make sense to split 
ppp-udeb into a ppp-udeb and a pppoe-udeb, or possibly 3 with and extra 
ppp-common-udeb.

Cheers,
FJP
