Can I use Asus RT-AC66U as a DSL router?

Hi guys! Alright, so I subscribed to one of the "high-end" DSL plans here in our country (Philippines by the way - plan is 8Mbps down) and it came with a ProLink H5004N ADSL2 + Wireless Router. Now I am kind of skeptical of the provided router that's why I am looking for a suitable replacement or better "solution".

I found the ASUS RT-AC66U as one of the possible replacements but since I am kind of new to these devices, I would like to ask for a second opinion from you guys and possibly ask for suggestions aside from the RT-AC66U (Linksys perhaps?).

If it helps, I have a gaming rig, a PS3 as well as 2 smartphones and a tablet that is utilizing the internet at my home.

You'll have to put the existing router functionality into bridge mode.

The N66U and AC66U are two fairly popular models.

And yes, either of those would be able to do DSL as long as your ISP does not use proprietary middleware.
