connected to my ADSL connection for the last 3-4 years.
I used a second-hand (few quid) BT Voyager 190 with flashed
firmware as an Ethernet modem. This connection used no accepted
standard, but it worked.
My exchange was finally upgraded to CN21 and ADSL 2+ became
available. I needed a new modem and the only one I could find was
a Draytek Vigor 120. It has run well until a few days ago and then
it gave up (8 months on total). With no internet my daughter was
giving me grief so I needed an alternative quick. In the loft was
an old (2007) D-Link DSL-2680 ADSL 2+ Router originally a "gift"
(Zero pounds). This was easily configure to "PPPoE over PPPoA" and
it became a temporary replacement.
The only problem left is, my daughter will not let me take the
DSL-2680 out of service.
Mike, thanks for an interesting thread,

With my Draytek Vigor 120 dead the question is, what else can I
choose from? So far I have discovered:<br>
<li>Motorola Netopia 2210 DSL Modem</li>
<li>Netgear DM 111P V2 Ethernet ADSL 2+ Modem</li>
<li>D-link-320B ADSL2+ Ethernet Modem</li>
<li>Zyxel P-660M ADSL2+ Modem</li>
<li>TP-Link TD 8817 ADSL2+ Ethernet/USB Modem</li>
<p>I have only added this information as it might save others some
