best modem router combo for at&t dsl

Specs: Windows Vista
I have a router and dsl combo we have been using it for about 6 years now I keep seeing the letters N and G and things the have external hard drives hooked up to the router and I see that the net is getting slower in my home and I think part of it is that we are growing with more tings we are adding to the net work .
Just trying to understand more about how the DSl works and best way to update it because I think at some point it is going to shut down because of the over load.
I am not a Internet net tech or a Dsl one but I know that if I take some time and ask the net world for some help that there are others out there that will try to help me because I know that I help others with the skills that I know .

Thanks to any one that tries to help me understand more about how it all works

What exactly is slower, the LAN or the internet?

If the internet, does this affect all clients, or just one or two?

One thing that kills bandwidth is downloading and uploading. If anybody in your network is running point-to-point sharing software it will hog all the bandwidth and slow everybody down. If this is going on, kill that p-to-p and see if you don't notice an immediate improvement.

If it's just one or two clients, chances are they're stuffed up with spyware and crap and you need to run a spyware cleaner on them.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
