Don't some cisco routers have a slot for some sort of interface card
and you just plug in a DSL card or a T1 card or whatever?  Of course
that's more expensive than just about anything, but if it's
homogeneity you want...

If you want cool features get something that's supported by OpenWRT

Honestly I don't see the advantage in having one piece of hardware do
both DSL and routing, especially where you may have a lot of
installations where the connection is not DSL.  Choose a good router
and a good DSL bridge (one that doesn't route.  just a blind bridge)
and use both where needed.
