[TriLUG] DirecTV DSL anyone?

I use it, I signed up when it was Telocity. Tech support is spotty, but I
don't know of any net access company that has good support. The router
box they supply is a little flaky, I've found power cycling it every week
seems to fix any issues. I love my static IP, I can ssh in from anywhere,
and use my box at home for what I need to do. They say the network has
been upgraded, and it appears to be true, although sometimes there are a lot
of hops between me and the rest of the net..
Right now I am trying to set up a VPN so I can take a linux laptop
firewall/router with me to work and run all net traffic through it, except
what needs to be routed to the client's local intranet. If anyone has any
hints or tips on how to do this, it would be appreciated.
