what would make something "compatible with Linux"?  for the most part, 
a cable or DSL modem is just going to hand you an IP address anyway, 
so why would it matter what OS you're running?

i've never had a problem dropping my linux laptop onto someone else's 
home network.  so what problem are you thinking of where linux would 
cause a problem and windows wouldn't?  just curious.
