More Reliability slightly higher cost: I'd actually suggest the
Speedstream that we've been talking about (or a similar model) as it

When a device says it's a 'DSL' router, that's just Ethernet, right?

No, it usually means it has some form of actual DSL support. For example, the Speedstream 5861 has a direct interface to my DSL link and handles all of the DSL connection setup from DMT up through PPPoE.

Reading the spec sheets is always mandatory...
