Changing ISP - do I need a new router?


[link to this post]
 
Hi,

Ive been with Nildram for many years and now want to change - most likely I'll move to IDNet.

My exchange doesn't support anything beyond ADSL and ADSL Max. I *think* I am currently on ADSL but if I move to IDNET I think I will be on ADSL Max.

The router I have is a Zyxel Prestige 650H-11 which is getting on a bit so I'd like to upgrade to something newer.

Question is whether I need to update my router BEFORE I change ISP or will I be able to switch to IDNET and still use this router in the short term?

Thanks for any help!

Use the router your ISP recommends, or gives, or sells.
You are much less likely to hit problems.

It should work with ADSL Max G.992.1 (G.DMT) OK.

What are the router line stats?

It should be fine, though info about it is hard to find.

If you can find and tell us your sync/connection speeds we can tell whether you are on fixed speed ADSL or ADSL Max. It is pretty unlikely you are not on ADSL Max. The info can probably be found through the menus on 192.168.1.1 with username admin and password 1234.
