Best PPPoE ADSL Modem for Watchguard Firewalls (and others)

When connecting ADSL to routers such as Watchguards we are often left using what I wound consider to be low end residential ADSL modems such as the ones from D-Link.  Are there any enterprise level very simple ADSL modems on the market?  The best I have found is the Draytek Vigor 110 but would be interested in something yet higher that will give me a bit more confidence in it.  We primarily use ADSL as a cost effective backup/balance to leased lines, not for primary connections.

What would people recommend?

I've heard most of these low end modems all use simillar chipsets anyway.
If you're just in bridged mode there won't be much in it.
Buy two, have a spare, is probably your best bet.
Spending more money isn't the answer.

I see where you are coming from there.  Anyone else have any other thoughts?

the SOHO are broadband DSL / Cable ready - with few exceptions, the SOHOs do not have a DSL modem (RJ-11) built-in.  Grab whatever dsl router/modem the ISPs gives you when you sign-up and Bridge it...  The DSL router/modem becomes a "dumb" passthru device.

Netopia DSL routers are considered Business class...
