[link to this post]
 
Hi all.....
I was just about to buy a draytek 2850n router for my vdsl2 connection and i seen it only does up to 50mbps. Im on a 80/20mbps connection now. so my question is what is the best router to go for now or is the draytek still ok.........smile

Cheers

if i read it right there suggesting throput, to put that in contex i only get 560Kb/s on a 4meg adsl connection so personaly i think the router would wipe the floor with a 80meg connection.

mind you i dont pretend to know for sure, theres several very well informed people here so they should be able to tell you if im wrong (or right).

The WAN throughput on 80/20 is around 100Mb/s, so you'll be losing half.

560 KB/sec is 560 * 8 = 4480 kilo bits per second
