ADSL2+ Hardware

It seems there is no definitive list of hardware which is ADSL2+ compatible.  So I thought, as a community, we could create one.
We've recently completed internal and external trials of ADSL2+ products, and our testers have used a wide variety of hardware.
*Please note:
The only routers that we guarantee will work are the ones we supply. We have many reported incidents where the 3rd party routers have not worked even with the latest firmware upgrade and recommend anyone having difficulties with their router to use Plusnet supplied hardware.
Plusnet-supplied ADSL2+ hardware:

  • Thomson 582n
  • Thomson 585v7
  • Thomson 585v8
  • Thomson 516v6
  • Thomson 510v6
  • D-Link DSL 2460B
  • D-Link DSL 320B
  • D-Link DSL 320T
  • Voyager 2091
  • Voyager 2110
  • Voyager 210
  • Prestige 660H

ADSL2+ hardware not supplied by Plusnet:

  • Netgear DG834*
  • Netgear DG834N
  • Netgear DG834G*
  • Netgear DG834GT
  • Netgear DG834GS
  • Linksys WAG54GS
  • Linksys AG241
  • Linksys WAG160N
  • Buffalo WBMR-G125
  • Buffalo Wireless N-Nfiniti
  • Hitachi AH5041
  • Belkin F5D7633au4A
  • Belkin N1 Vision

* This Netgear hardware may need a firmware update depending on the version:

If you're on our ADSL2+ trial, using different hardware and can confirm that it is compatible and working please add to this post. It would be useful if you could also mention whether a firmware upgrade was required.

EDIT:
As some extra details have become available and 20mb on Value has launched we've decided to add a more detailed list of ADSL2 hardware.
The more technically minded amongst you will notice that we've included the manufacturer of the Chipset. This is as there is a widespread belief that Broadcom chipsets work best on 21CN. However we've not just limited this list to Broadcom based routers.
We have also included if the router is Annex M compatible, this basically means if the router will support upload speeds in excess of 2.5mb. This is not something we offer at the moment but we are likely to in the future so that is something else for your consideration.
As always any comments and feedback are welcome.
