Yes, any router you like so long as it's compatible with ADSL.

Seems like a bit of an overkill. You don't need to spend a fortune for something that's pretty decent. If it's extra wireless range that you are after it's much much better to add a wireless repeater connected to the original router via ethernet. Wireless range is largely ruled by regulations so often the more expensive products only have marginally better range, simply because regulation means a router can only output so much.

Often the more expensive products use 40Mhz on 2.4Ghz and use 5Ghz. Both of which actually have worse range than 20Mhz 2.4Ghz (which is what your cheapo £30ish router will use) but are a lot faster when you are close to the router. So you can lose wireless range but gain speed close up with some expensive products.
