I am using Rpi in India. Using Fiber optic cable installed by my ISP with below modem :
DBG Make, Model : BCEM13/15-20-R, Type : Single mode 20Km, Speed :10/100M, wavelength TX 1310 / RX 1550, Max. transmit Packets : 1600 bytes. This unit has a RJ11 input for fiber optic cable. output with RJ45 cable. On windows 7, 32-bit machine I have to supply username and password to connect internet. I do not have spare laptop so want to use internet with Rpi.
Hope explained better and look forward some reply as since I have bought this Rpi never able to use internet on it. BTW mine was received in april 2012 but not able to utilise it till date.

from what you are saying, it sounds like your ISP requires that you use your software, and that is not possible.

with regular dialup here in the USA, it is possible to get on to the internet from the command line without any special software from my ISP. But I do not know anything about dongles or about access through DSL.

What system are you running on your Pi? Have you asked your ISP if you can log in without using their software?

Does anyone know what software he needs to log in with DSL cable, in general, and if it comes built in to any ROMs?

AFAIK this works like a captive portal , so you just have to login
with a browser. That could be automated via curl or similiar
tools.

Get a copy of Wireshark.
Run that on Windows to capture all traffic on your WAN interface.
Connect the cable modem.
Stoke up firefox (opera, chrome, or what ever) and login to your ISP.
Stop Wireshark and have a look at the IP traffic that process has generated.

You should then be able to work out what needs to be done on your RPi to emulate that sequence.
