Is there a comprehensive list of what modems do PPPoA to PPPoE bridging?

I know the Draytek Vigor 120 is the obvious choice, but are there any others that people use, Draytek or otherwise?

Some of the VDSL2 modems do it. ADSL not sure of anything other than the Draytek. A few do half bridge though.

Draytek Vigor 120 is the way to go.

And you're done.

There are a whole stack of others that do half bridging mode.  The Vigor 120 is the cheaper of the vast majority of them and you don't need any other features apart from a ADSL and Ethernet port.

There is also the option of connecting to an an ISP offering PPPoE for ADSL2+ over EUBA and that gives you a lot more modem and router options.
