I was trying to get DSL on my computer rather then dial up. I have a Gateway Astro which is a all in one computer. With only USB plug and play. one of the recommended System configurations needed for this DSL is a 10 base-T Ethernet adapter. Is there any posible way to get this so I can have DSL

Most DSL providers will give love to give you a USB DSL modem. It's much cheaper for them that way. If you already have an Ethernet DSL modem, then a USB adapter will do the trick. If you're running it through a USB hub, make sure you have a power hub. I've installed several of them, and they work very well. Stay away from the really "cheap" ones though, some have problems.
