Comtrend DSL modem use iptables in their code.  I discovered this while
trying to understood why small-MTU FTP breaks when issuing the PORT command.

DSL and cable modems are extremely simple devices.  I'm amazed they have
any amount of "router" in them at all.  And I've yet to see one running
Linux. (the 2 popular brands around here -- westell and motorola -- run
vxworks.)
