I could not find anything at umart that had the one essential
feature not in the list you showed -- the ability to fall back
to a POTS dial-up when the ADSL falls over (mandatory at least
until the ADSL network becomes more robust).  I can do this
easily with an old Unix box, which I can also setup easily with
a simple ADSL modem.

So the question is:  are there actually low-end ADSL routers
that can do this?

Cheers, Greg
