You have to be careful with modems, they must just bridge the connection to whatever device will be doing the routing (or a standalone device). If they get involved in authentication they are no use. The only device listed on Broadbandbuyer is the Vigor 130.
But as you say that then opens up all sorts of other routers like the Synology which are excellent and do now support a mesh system. But then Draytek now have a mesh system too. The 27xx series allow you to control 2 APs which should be more than enough for home and small offices. The big boy 28 / 29 will control 8 APs.
