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


ok so im wrong on both counts..............

i use the desktop network meter from here http://addgadget.com/ set to my network port and thats the figure it ststes, my router is saying connected at 4150 (ok not tec 4 meg but close enough)

will now shut up now the experts are here smile

So Im i right in thinking that the draytek is not good enough for a 80/20 connection and if not which router is........smile

My ip profile is set at 64.97mbps and the fastest throughput I've seen is about 7.50

I don't think the Draytek 2850n is a problem - it's rated for 30a profiles..

Draytek mention:

Max. WAN Throughput in excess of 50Mb/s


Probably worth emailing Draytek to confirm rather than just guessing.

The specs say:

VDSL support (WAN3, RJ11):
VDSL2 Profile: 8a, 8b, 8c, 8d, 12a, 12b, 17a, 30a
Max. WAN Throughput in excess of 50Mb/s

It is not limited to 50Mb and can probably do up to 400.

I posted about this a while back...

http://forums.thinkbroadband.com/dslrouter/t/4064933...

Drayteks answer to me was the officail spec is 50 meg throughput, although they say that is conservative and it would be able to do more.

I brought one anyway lol

Still awaiting FTTC so you let you know!

Maybe somebody else is using a 2850 already

In reply to a post by saboo1690:

If that 7.50 is mbytes/sec observed throughput then that sounds high to me. 7.50*8 = 60mbit/sec, about 92% of profile. Closer to 97% if adjusting for the 7.5 being MiB (7.5*1024*1024) not MB (7.5*1000*1000).

If the 7.50 if mbits/sec, then you have a problem that I think is unlikely to be due to the router (unless the router goes completely odd when swamped) as it is far below what 40/10 should deliver never mind 80/20 (unless the 7.5 is an upstream reading?). I'd expect to see more "lost" (compared to the profile rate) in ATM and TCP overheads.

Regarding alternatives: I have a small Linux box that runs 24/7 anyway, so I've connected it directly to the VDSL modem on one network interface and it does the routing/firewall/vpn work for the rest of my network - no extra router required. Setting up PPPoE is pretty easy if you have a reasonable amount of experience of Linux networking (though not a solution I'd recommend if you haven't, as you may be "on your own" if something goes wrong).

There's no ATM on OR FTTC.

There is a figure floating around somewhere giving the percentage of profile that many get on FTTC. IIRC it is in the high 90s.
