I would only recommend these routers if you have a good short line to the exchange as on long lines they drop
The Technicolour 585v8 is better ventilated then the v7 as for the 582 n i haven't tried that as yet

Alas, my line is 6.1km long with 63db attenuation.

At the moment I mainly use my 585v7 which has been much better since I applied the latest 8.2.6.5 firmware update about a year ago. I also have a DGN2200. I think that the 585v8 and the 582n are possibly available FOC from Plusnet if I agree to stay with them for another year, so I was wondering about getting one.

The 582n. Has a Broadcom chipset which is better on longer lines, despite other posts.

The 585 v8 has an Infineon chip which isn't as good.

I picked up a brand new PlusNet 585 v8 2 days ago and it works perfectly. It was plugged in 2 days, 19 hours, 40 minutes ago and here are the stats since:

The Linksys appears to have a Broadcom chipset but the TP Link seems to have a TrendChip, which isn't as good.

Thanks matt
So correct me if I'm wrong it's the broadcom chip set which is currently the one to go for when purchasing a new router ?

It does depend on your line - but a Broadcom chipset transformed things for me! smile
