    Is there any Tomato build with support for DSL modems? As in, Tomato manages the DSL link.

    If your DSL link is pppoe you can put the modem in a 'full bridge mode' and enter the ppp username/password etc into Tomato.

    What mstombs recommends ios the normal way to use Tomato on ADSL. But I'm just wondering, if you actually mean a combined router/modem in one box, then the answer is no. Tomato firmware is for routers that have external modems (of whatever kind).

    The best way is what mstombs said - put your modem in full bridge mode. If for some reason you absolutely can't do that though, you can set the modem to DMZ to the Tomato router, or if the modem has no DMZ mode then just forward every port like 1-65000 to the Tomato router. It's not ideal because you're doing a double-NAT, but for example I have to do this with the fibre-modem supplied by my ISP, and it generally works OK.
