With my Draytek Vigor 120 dead the question is, what else can I choose 
from? So far I have discovered:

  * Motorola Netopia 2210 DSL Modem
  * Netgear DM 111P V2 Ethernet ADSL 2+ Modem
  * D-link-320B ADSL2+ Ethernet Modem
  * Zyxel P-660M ADSL2+ Modem
  * TP-Link TD 8817 ADSL2+ Ethernet/USB Modem

I have only added this information as it might save others some time.
