The other alternative is to get a separate router and adsl2 modem and then just swap out the adsl2 modem for the openreach one when/if I do eventually get FTTC. Any recommendations on what combo to go for in that case? Is that a better option then going for a combined adsl2/vdsl/router?
Why not get the 2830 ? If you do get FTTC the rules are you are to keep the Openreach modem connected (some people do disconnect, but that's not offically allowed).
The 2830 has Ethernet (for FTTC, or cable) and ADSL2/2+ built in, and has all the other features you're used to, along with WiFi certified wireless (first seen in the 2820) which resolves the problems of the earlier Draytek models that were not certified (2600, 2800, 2900).
The 2830 has gigabit ethernet ports too.
