The Dynalink ALE070 is a USB connected modem with a GlobeSpan Virata chipset. Fortunately, this chipset is fairly well supported by the ECIADSL project, and this modem has been used successfully overseas.

The documentation is quite thorough, and setup doesn't take long. Binaries are available for many distributions.
