Probably depends on the specific piece of equipment being used at the exchange I guess, which could be anything.

ah ok, I thought there was a trend with them. Just consdering using my old Netgear DGTEAM one, or using the one they provide.

On the TT exchanges (not ex-Tiscali), it is generally IFTN, Infineon.

Thank you uno, what would the best routers be for using this chipset, for speed and ping?

It's a fallacy that you need to match router to exchange gubbins.

The Internet is open, interoperable and platform-transparent.

Wasn't in my case when i was with Ukonline not a fallacy at all, it can and does make a difference,

and it's not the dslam chipset that you match, it's the line card chipset, A long way before you transit to the WWW.

There is a long ukonline thread about this subject on here, and also plenty of other places on the internet
Obviously it will depend on the characteristics of the individual line in each case, how much the end user gains in sync ect , the billion 7402 series of router worked a lot better than the netgear DG834GT's that they sold customers, fallacy my foot

That is the theory, but maximum performance is not in that list

I'm not so sure now, having gone to an Infineon chipset modem on my TalkTalk LLU line:

Billion 7800N (Broadcom 6358)
Downstream sync: 15049 kbps
DS Attenuation: 27db
DS SNR: 6.1 db

Billion 7800N (Broadcom 6358)
Downstream sync: 17849 kbps
DS Attenuation: 27db
DS SNR: 3.0db (tweaked)

Linksys X2000 (Broadcom 6328)
Downstream sync: 15990 kbps
DS Attenuation: ? db
DS SNR: ? db

Draytek 120 v2 (Danube Infineon)
Downstream sync: 17571 kbps
DS Attenuation: 29db
DS SNR: 6.2 db

The Draytek's been rock solid so far (connected to Linksys EA4500) so going to stick with this for the time being. From the top of my head other Infineon routers include netgear DGN1000, DG834G (some versions) and if money isn't an object then go for Draytek 2820 or 2830 smile

Having said all this, if i was on a long line ( atten. >50db) then wouldn't use anything other than a Broadcom router purely for line stability.
