1) If you don't have any personal experience with it, you can't know whether
it sucks or not.
2) I have used both Cable and DSL. DSL is much faster, average-over-time.
3) I don't know about your setup, but my DSL setup does not involve PPPoe.
The DSL router gets its address from the providers DHCP pool, and my
computers are on a private subnet. I use NAT on the router, and filter
there. If your provider forces your computer to use DHCP, rather than the
router, poke around in the router a bit. If it's a Cisco, email me off-list
and I'll see if I can get you started.
