unless they're wanting to replace their DSL modem with a modem/router combo unit (and assuming their ISP allows for such a thing) then no, any router will work. they'll need to consult their DSL provider's support page to get instructions on how to connect a router to the modem (most DSL connections require modification to the modem settings for the router to function properly)
