I am currently looking to replace my existing ADSL wireless router with a newer model. I have seen a lot of routers advertised as ADSL2/2+. I understand that ADSL2 and ADSL2+ offers faster speeds over regular ADSL, however my telephone line is not currently capable of ADSL2/2+ speeds.

My question is do ADSL2/2+ routers work on regular ADSL lines?

Yes they do. You shouldn't have any problems.

+1 bang on, ADSL2+ routers have a whole range of protocols/annexes that they support. Standard ADSL is one of them. – William Hilsum Jan 6 '10 at 22:54
