Have received a new router today from Post Office broadband. Was wondering if anyone knows why new routers are being sent out.
Having spoken to the help desk, they simply say there is a revised configuration in the new router, but it is not clear why that would be. Not sure if it is related to Annex L or Annex M being configured for the service, or it is using a different login. The previous router survived the change from BT to TalkTalk with only a reboot, and gives a line speed of 19Mbit down, 1Mbit up as I live 400 yards from the local BT exchange.
I have already put a good Wireless N router on my line which has been working well for about 4 months. I would rather update the config on the existing router (and preserve the better wireless range) rather than put a £25 router in its place.
Sorry first post here, trying not to ruffle too many feathers.
