I got the DSL-W 906E from http://www.dsl-warehouse.co.uk.
Though it's not at all the best one around I have to say it does the job
and a bit. Some of the features can be a pain to get working (ie. pptp in
pppoe mode - can't figure it out). The documentation is not the best, but

All in all it's a cheap desent performer, that I am happy enough with.
