I've been using that exactly set-up for nearly a year, with no problems at all.  In fact, I've used that kit with iiNet for four years, and when I switched the line from Telstra-(mis)managed to naked DSL last year, the line quality shot through the roof.  Average connection speed was approx 4 to 8 Mbit/s under Telstra ... now constantly in the 18 to 20 Mbit/s range with occasional higher peaks :-).
