    I am currently running an WRT54G v3 and a dodgy ebay $2 spec ADSL modem for my home ADSL. The router is great, and I dont want to get rid of it! but I do want to upgrade to ADSL 2+.

    The problem is I cant seem to find any ADSL 2+ plain modems anywhere! They are all modem/routers! Is there a way to use one as just a modem and use my WRT as the router with the static DHCP etc?

    Or is there any ADSL 2+ standard modems to be found?

    Yeah you could.... I am using a Speedstream 5200 which is a ADSL2+ modem. Check with http://www.dslreports.com/ for more info.

    Hi mate,

    who makes this speedstream 5200? the only one I could find seems to be an ADSL 1 modem/router

    New question:

    I've had a look and my old dlink 504T router supports ADSL2+ with a firmware update, and it can be put in 'Bridge Mode'. My understanding of this is it would then act just like a standard modem and I could use it with my WRT54G. Is that correct if so this would be the best option.
