Netgear DG834PN Rangemax


[link to this post]
 
I'm with a punter at the moment,

the grey matter ain't what it used to be, does the router in the title ONLY do ADSL .. I suspect it may.

Answers on a post card please.

So it does, or doesn't do 2/2+ ?

I could find nothing useful on the box or in the router web interface.

The customer was on a very long line, 66db attenuation, and it was only receiving G.DMT, but I reckon she could have squeezed a little more with 2+ and a somewhat newer router.

It will do ADSL or ADSL2+ but NOT VDSL2+

Which provider, as some may have locked the profile to be ADSL only (thinking of people like Post Office where very rare to see any user with an ADSL2+ type speed)

Whoa!!!!!

I'll swear it does, but it isn't mentioned in any product specs!

Does. I had one. The blue flashing light is a PITA but can be turned off.

Second edit - the online documentation is garbage. The support for it has a link to how to set it up for VDSL2, which we know it cannot do, and the page that link goes to (VDSL2 set up) says it applies a whole string of 834s. Rot!

PlusNet does sometimes do odd things, how sure are you that its not an old IPStream Max connection?

And user double checked that ADSL mode is not forced, but modem left to do multi-mode.

It may also be very old firmware, some Netgears while spec said ADSL needed firmware updates to work on a wide range of DSLAM.
