We're using iiNet with Linux which has in-house Linux expertise if you 
get really stuck.  Their modem bundles (and most you can now buy) all 
support ethernet and use web pages for setup, so whether it's Linux or 
Windows etc. is really a non issue.

iiNet also include a VOIP phone line and "Naked DSL" allows you to avoid 
paying for a real phone line (the VOIP-enabled modem is a little more 
expensive but still less than 6-12 months of $30/month to Telstra.)
