Do you think it is a good modem/router?
From what I've seen, it is probably more how compatible it is with your ISP than with Linux - Linux will just see an ethernet connection.
I'm using a DG834GT (an ex-Sky router) with the latest DGteam firmware loaded. It is a recommended modem/router for my ISP, since it is a Broadcomm-based unit. The DGteam firmware is available for just about all of the DG834 series.
I was using a ZyXel 660HW, but found that with my current ISP, I was getting quite a lot slower connections than I was with the modem/router they supply. I bought the DG834GT because the router supplied by the ISP was not flexible enough for my needs.
The GT was cheap - picked up on eBay for less than £10. The DGteam firmware is free, and can be downloaded from here:
