Prolink h9601 ADSL Modem not working in Ubuntu 13.10?
Linux driver for your router is eciadsl. On eciadsl web page you can download it. You can choose from Debian, Fedora and OpenSuse packages over Gentoo ebuilds to source file. Ubuntu is Debian based so it uses .deb packages so you wish to download the .deb package and install it. In case it fails to install, download the source. Before making it install gnu make, automake and cmake packages. Open terminal and type sudo apt-get install make cmake automake and press enter. Untar source package ( tar xvjf source.tar.bz ), cd into it and run ./configure. After it configures run make && sudo make install && make clean. Reboot Ubuntu and now it should be working. To setup your network with this router you have to use pppoe.
