I'm currently sat in the middle of a predicament and i'm wondering if anyone here can help, my problem is as follows:* My old modem/router combo doesn't support ADSL2+, we have recently switched to one of these shiny connections * We bought a router thinking this would solve the problem (Linksys WRT54GL) however we forgot the modem * I now require a modem (without the router, just the modem) that supports ADSL2+ and ideally Annex M, they seem to be hard to find Any help with the finding of such a modem would be appreciated.Most ADSL hardware sucks. Don't be cheap on this one. I've tried it and it's not worth it. Just go and by a Draytek Vigor 120 or similar. They're not cheap (about 50 pounds on ebay), but it's worth it.
They're £50 new from e.g. http://www.broadbandbuyer.co.uk/Shop/ShopDetail.asp?ProductID=7898I am a Draytek reseller - I'll lookup the price in a bit, but James May is on telly in a few minutes.. Might be a bit cheaper.
Not sure why you're looking for Annex M - I think only LLU operators (and then just Be?) support it... Things may have changed though, but the Draytek supports Annex M to give slightly faster uplink speeds.
