One of the *new* 7800N series from Billion should do, although you'll be
paying for the ADSL card that you won't use.
I've had extremely bad experiences with Netgear, so I can't recommend them.

http://au.billion.com/products/wireless/bipac7800nxl.html - listed as FTTH
http://au.billion.com/products/voip/bipac7800vdpx.html - I have this one.
You really need the latest firmware for it but it's rock solid.

Both have gigabit "upstream" ports for your FTTH connection (jealous).
