    You want the ADSL modem built in? Hmmm. I am not sure about that. In a regualr router, I would go with one of Belkin's pre-n routers. I am not sure if they have any with an ADSL modem built in, but they have the best ditance and transfer rates. They are about to approve the 802.11n standard soon though.

    If you know anyone who has bt broadband you can either call 150 and get the Voyager 2091 for £30 or prbly order online (after signing in to bt.com) and get it for only £10 - Both models are 802.11 b/g, support up to 10 users and work with Macs fine.

    Failing not knowing anyone you can still purchase it directly from BT for £50. Standalone retail price is typically £70 to £100 from places such as PC World etc. so it is really quite a good deal!

    I don't know about the best signal but I use a Netgear DG834G and it works just fine for me.

    I know you aren't in the US, but you might want to check out http://www.2wire.com/. My DSL provider provided me with a 2Wire DSL Modem/Wireless Router combo unit that has worked great.

    D-Link?

    I use the D-Link G604t. Not the easiest to set-up but absoloutely bomb proof. Works very well with good range. Wireless and Wired Router and ADSL Modem. Experience with others is varied. BT Broadband one works well too, had a Belkin ADSL Modem Router fail and a Netgear at my Fathers house seems to work OK but no real experience with range etc.

    Another vote for the Netgear DG834G. Plus it fits in very well with Apple's Products being minimalist and white.

    Great signal, easy to use and reliable.
