Ascend Max TNT, anything "Cisco 2XXX", the early Linksys WRT54G's...

The two big wins with ADSL kit is that the copper lines cause some
damage or at least wear on kit from load, and that fibre (sometimes with
VDSL tails) is making it obsolete. At least ADSL1 is pretty much
obsolete in the civilised world.

This is the situation we have here in Australia, hopefully as FTTH rolls
out all the major ISP's will be ensuring that all the CPE they ship is
v6 ready day one.
