the flowpoint code and routers got bought by efficient networks,
however they still use
the same cli that flowpoint developed, and its one of the better ones.
from what you told us I can tell you that your sdsl either doesnt
all, or uses pap or chap authentication with a built in
username/password in the routers
config. Whether authenticated or unauthenticated it uses dhcp on the wan to grab
an IP address and gateway, and a single default route catches and
points to that.
The hurdle is finding the sdsl chipset on the flowpoint 2200 on a pci
card and getting getting some drivers working. That sdsl chipset is
non-standard and there arent a ton of dslams that have cards that
support it - mostly lucent stngr and nokia d50 dslams, who knows maybe
