Is the HG532 router supplied by AOL any good?


[link to this post]
 
I had a Thomson ST585 router and it allowed me to connect to AOL at over 4mb. When it went faulty AOL sent me a Huwei HG523. This is an N series router but I can't get anywhere near 4mb.

Not sure if AOL changed my settings or the router needs tweaking or is inferior to the Thomson?

I would appreciate any helpful comments.

Upstream line rate (kbit/s) 498
Downstream line rate (kbit/s) 3843
Line standard ADSL2
Channel type Interleaved
Upstream SNR (dB) 8.7
Downstream SNR (dB) 8.8
Upstream interleave depth 2
Downstream interleave depth 64
Upstream line attenuation (dB) 32.2
Downstream line attenuation (dB) 58
Upstream output power (dBmV) 12.5
Downstream output power (dBmV) 0
Upstream CRC 1145
Downstream CRC 65504

This stat "Downstream line rate (kbit/s) 3843" used to be well over 4000
So does that mean AOL have messed with the line?

On the old router?

Diff routers measure slightly differently. This is not significantly different and is v.g. for your long line.

The same one as Talk Talk uses, I replaced one of those with old netgear DG-834 for someone and they get a better speed snf better connection.

TT seems to be up Huwei backside, and it flipping scares me to thing that peoiples data is now going through Huwei system as they operate TT homesafe.
