Just moved house, ADSL2+ is available! so a few questions.

Anyone got a recommendation for a an ADLS2+ MODEM, I don't need a router as my WRT54G does that fine, just need a modem, Internode only offers modem/routers on install.

Second question: do ADSL1 modems work at all with an ADSL2 connection?

Thanks!

edit:
got my google brain working:

ADSL1 modems work at ADSL1 speeds when connected to ADSL2 exchange:

The only vanilla ADSL2+ modems I've come across are the linksys AGsomethingorother ones so you could either look at those, or just buy a Billion/Linksys router and run it in bridge mode.

ADSL 1 Modems will work, but you'll be stuck at 1.5Mbps

I have a WRT54GL router myself, and I use a linksys AM300 modem. ADSL2+, cheap, works in bridge mode. I'm pretty happy with it. The only problem I have with my setup is it doesn't seem I cna get TPGs IPTV to work :(
