ADSL2 on Cisco 857

Hello Experts

My home broadband has just been upgraded to ADSL2 and my cisco 857 doesn't recognise the ADSL line anymore.

Its got 12.4(6). The wan interface is reads ATMoPOTS.

Some forums say that the Firmware needs upgrading. Some say the IOS needs upgrading. one of the Cisco links says only HWIC on the 857s support ADSL2. But its a fixed router - not modular. The only built-in WAN port is ATMoPOTS.

Could anyone provide me with the right advise ASAP please ? We all know how it is without internet access at home !

many thanks
