I just picked up a cheap Dlink DSL502T router, heard a few stories that if I flash it's firmware to ADSL2+ support that it will stop it from using the current ADSL1 technology. Any of this true in general for all modems/routers out there?

thanks.

I doubt that's the case. Most things are backwards compatible.
Just make sure you've got the older firmware and that you can flash it back to the phone if necessary.

Well I've just installed the router using ADSL2+ firmware and it works perfectly fine.
Me and my flatmate are in a bit of a state of shock, we were using a Nokia M1122 router and it could only connect at 1.5mb. The dlink connects at 2.5mb and we can download easily at 250k a sec, even in the middle of peak (using ihug)
