jonb: The tp-link one has a very good reputation here on geekzone, if you look through some old threads..

I bought myself a vodafone complete hg556a from trademe, I've has no problems with it personally ( I don't use the file storage or 3g backup capability), but I would probably get the tp-link one if I was buying again.

+1. I got one for my PIL about 6 months ago after reading through geekzone, I don't know if it meets all your requirements (mainly because I don't know understand what some of them are, haha) but I found it easy to set up and it has been super reliable for them, they use it wired to 2 PCs plus use it wirelessly for an android phone and an iPad.  Pretty good value for the price.

Falvation: Any models and brands you would recommend?

As I said I'd get a separate router - it leaves more options. And there are not many options for ADSL2+ with dual-band router, but I see one has been recommended already. I'd look at that one first if you can find it at $250:

nakedmolerat: i have netgear dgnd3700 (~6 months now). this modem/router is flawless

gigabit wired connection : TV, 2xNAS

usb: 1 x harddrive

wireless : desktop, macbook air, 3x android devices, printer

i bought this for about $250 from jb hifi when they have cost+gst special
