Better router for a long line than a 2700hgv?


[link to this post]
 
Hi all,
I am wondering if there is a better router than the BT2700HGV for handling (fairly) long lines. I'm not having a problem with disconnects but more speed is always nice!

some router stats: (currently on BT business MAX, moving over to talktalk LLU next week) I am about 1.5km from the exchange as the crow flies but there is no chance of the wiring following any sensible route tongue

Rate: 7264 kbs 448 kbs
Max Rate: 7580 kbs 976 kbs
Noise Margin: 7.0 dB 22.0 dB
Attenuation: 35.9 dB 19.0 dB
Output Power: 19.8 dBm 12.2 dBm

As far as I am aware the internal wiring is top notch so shouldn't be affecting sync speeds at all, but I have ordered an XTE-2005 faceplate just in case.

So does anyone have a router to recommend that might beat that sync speed, and ideally have the ability to manually set my snr margin

Calculated line length is 2.6Km, and you should get around 12Megs on ADSL2+.

That's what I am hoping! Just wondering if there is a better router, or one with the same good syncing i'm getting now that supports custom SnR margins.

Hi, the BT Business Hub 2Wire 2700HGV wireless router can be cofigured for TalkTalk LLU connection.

check out the Billion 7800N wireless router, it has the SNR tweak feature and much more, it (might) do the job for you.

Best price http://www.amazon.co.uk/Billion-BiPAC-7800N-Broadban...

At your line's attenuation I'm afraid you don't qualify as having a "long line"! wink

With my 50/51db line I find a broadcom based router works better than the 2700 - so for your line you have plenty more choices.
You would be better looking for one that works well with TT LLU.

I use a Netgear DG834GT (wired to the PC) that I got from eBay a few years ago and loaded it with firmware from the DGTeam in order to tweak the SNR settings and it does the job for just a small outlay of cash.


Currently getting a 4064 Kbps sync with a reported downstream attenuation of 61.0dB

Mode:			G.DMT
Channel:		Interleave
Trellis:		ON
Line Status:		No Defect
Training Status:	Showtime
		Down		Up
SNR (dB):	6.6		17.0
Attn(dB):	61.0		29.5
Pwr(dBm):	19.4		12.1
Max(Kbps):	4416		912
Rate (Kbps):	4064		448


Haven't used a 2Wire 2700HGV on my line yet so can't compare.

I am in agreement with b4dger on this one.

My attentuation was 40 on ADSL Max, but I would never have
considered that to be anywhere near a (fairly) long line.

As suggested, earlier, you might be better to find a router that
is best suited to your upcoming LLU connection.
