I got around the no adsl problem using a 15 quid Linksys ADSL2MUE. It looks
like every other one of their products, but has the ability to do a PPPoA
(british adsl) to PPPoE conversion.

Britsh ADSL actually allows a single PPPoE connection on a PPPoA line (so
the WRTSL54GS's PPPoE authentication works fine). I'm not explaining this
very well, if you go to
http://forums.broadbandbuyer.co.uk/forum_posts.asp?TID=2532&PN=1 You'll see
what I mean, they're using a WRT54H but it works fine with the WRTSL54GS. I
use option 2, there's no draw backs, and it means you can use any PPPoE
capable router in your setup.

Basically the ADSL2MUE acts as a bridge between PPPoE and PPPoA.
