Re: [Equipment] 2wire
The 2Wire 2701HG is our home networking product. It was selected quite simply because other ISP's have used it with great success and it works well with our internal walled garden app. and it has alot of TR-069 functionality built in. Its just a simple wireless router with an integrated ADSL2+ modem.
Interestingly, we found in the lab that the 2Wire is able to train a little farther out than the Siemens unit. We have about 25,000 feet of test copper plant to play with so its one of the side tests we do. I don't have the numbers in front of me so I can't say exactly how much farther.
As far as using different/strange modems, I use a Cisco 2800 router with an ADSL WIC in it, it tends to get the job done.

Sounds like a job for PC Labs. Find which modems will train at what distance with a given provisioning.
I am sure there are a good handful of people on the edge of dsl service that would gladly pay a $100 or more to get a modem or modem/router that would let them squeak by with just a number or two too low for the average modem.
