Will ADSL router from UK work in continental Europe, are the ADSL standards same in UK and rest of Europe?

When I plug it in power supply it works normally it seems and as it is a wireless router (belkin F5D7630-4A I can connect it from my PC wi-fi card, but when I plug in the adsl cable it begins to restart every minute or two

    German ADSL services work on generally faster sync rates and higher frequency carrier. Germany is rapidly deploying ADSL2+ and VDSL services, too. It's unlikely British equipment will work on German ADSL circuits, and no chance on VDSL lines. http://www.mysme.de/index.php?module=pagemaster&PA...

    ADSL2 or ADSL2+ is rapidly becoming the standard in most European countries: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ADSL2%2B

    Note that the UK is in the list, but deployments are just starting in the BT network. It's unlikely you would have an ADSL2+ modem from a UK supplier yet.
