TG582N Only Has a Broadcom 6328?


[link to this post]
 
I believed that the TG582N had a Broadcom 6358, but according to DMT it has a 6328:

It has a BCM6328 which is as good if not better than the BCM6358.

+1. I've just bought a Linksys X2000 to use as a spare router...it uses a Broadcom 6328 chip. I've noticed that it syncs almost a meg higher than the Billion 7800N which uses a Broadcom 6358. I'm now using the Linksys, really impressed with its wireless range and also love the feature where you can turn off the router lights. On the downside the router doesn't give you any line stats frown

3rd generation vs. 2nd generation
lower cost
slightly faster clock speed
faster/larger memory interface

And of course build quality and feature's suffer as it's a Thompson or re branded Technicolor , as for it syncing higher than a billion 7800 n i can't say, but what i can say is that it compared to a Netgear DG834 v4 showed little or no improvement on sync ,
The only thing that it was better at was showing a lower latency whilst uploading , it still has the horrible GUI most of the advanced options are hidden away within it's CLI interface, port forwarding can be a pain .basically their routers suck because they are not designed with the users in mind, a simple thing such as changing the routers lan ip, also there are a number of security risks back doors built in so isp's can remotely manage , unless this is disabled in cli

the 7800n refuses to sync higher than 19320 on my line though the tg582n syncs about 19800

also the 7800n has build issues concerning the RAlink wireless card - it has a very high failure rate

in all honesty you don't expect the amount of DOA's on a 120 quid router
