ianmcginley, I installed ADSL a few weeks ago.
I decided to go with Swiftel ($75.00 - 256kb/64 unlimited - note they also do a 512kb/128 6gb plan for $65.00) and I have been very impressed with them, speed and service has been excellent. I can't recommend them highly enough.
Anyhow, I brought my ADSL modem off Swiftel. They offer the Netcomm NB 1300 for $175 including one line filter and delivery to your door (Very competitive price when you factor in delivery and next day replacement if something goes wrong in the first year).
I have been very impressed with this modem. Setup was very easy and all I had to do was simply put in my account details (as provided by Swiftel) and it connected automatically using PPPoE.
It was also easy to get the modem to work with my new network, which arrived last week. I simply plugged the modem directly into my router and set the modem up in bridged PPPoE mode and its worked perfectly.
This modem also has an inbuilt router (not that I use it) and lots of other little features. It can be connected via Ethernet (10 or 100mbits) or via USB.
As far as I can tell it would do everything that you would want.
