The only way to find out is to apply for an upgrade to 2Mb (if you have ADSL already) or apply for ADSL at 2Mb if you don't already have it. In the first case, if you can't get it any regrade fees will be refunded. In the 2nd, you may be limited to 512K only.

The distance from the exchange or line quality determins if you can get ADSL in the first place and then if you can get 1Mb/2Mb speeds. This is only determined by a BT test and that will only be done with an ADSL order (new or upgrade).

The 54g works fine with PlusNet and any other UK ISP.

If you intend to use the External router you mentioned then PPoE in XP is not involved, the router deals with the connection not XP. XP only has a network connection to deal with which does not involve PPoE.
