Portable DSL?

I had a guest check in today for his vacation home who brought his DSL modem with him, because he's convinced he can plug it in to the phone line at his unit here in Sunriver, and he'll get his DSL. I had to tell him that it wouldn't work. He didn't believe me.

He just called me, asked us to give him SBC/Yahoo's 800 number so he could call them and yell at them because apparently he was told he could do that. If I could take a DSL modem and plug it into any phone plug in the world and have it magically work, I'd buy one -- or a dozen -- myself. Meanwhile, I gave the guest the local AOL, Earthlink, and NetZero dial up numbers, because he said he had an account with one of them, but he couldn't remember which one.
