I finally caved in and am going to ADSL at home (I do the majority of my computing at work so never really needed it). For the amount of usage I'm only going ADSL rather than ADSL2 (ADSL is cheaper). The reason for this thread is to ask the question "is an ADSL2 modem reverse compatible with plain ordinary ADSL. I like the idea of a combined Wireless Router & Modem and the ADSL2 version are easier to find and buy. So can I buy an ADSL2 Modem and use it on ADSL??
