Just upgraded from a 40/10 to 80/20 FTTC line with Plusnet, that's all I know technically. I'm thinking about a little hardware upgrade to eek the best out of the bits with the upgrade, advice welcomed.
Currently, we use the Plusnet branded hardware as a modem. It's wired into a more powerful Asus router which looks after our LAN and wireless needs. I'd like to replace the Plusnet box with a dedicated modem. Mainly to have functionality to choose my own DNS servers, but also to neaten up our internet-cupboard and cable management and as a bonus maybe we might see some long term stability improvements.
Can anyone recommend a third-party modem that will be compatible with our connection, neat and industrially reliable?

Make sure your router can run PPPoE on the WAN port
