This is not exactly what you are asking for, but its getting close:
Look at the "Clipcomm" devices (Korea). I'd be interested in any reports 
& experiences.

Next to that the newer Grandstream firmware now supports PPPoE (but now 
routing or port forwarding). Not sure what the CISCO devices offer in 
this respect. I wouldn't want to have ADSL modem & router coupled in one 
device, that'll make your router useless if you move to cable modem etc. 
So better not integrate too many task into one piece of hardware.

Cheers, Philipp
