At the moment I'm using a Thomson 585 v6 with firmware 188.8.131.52 on 'up to' 8 Mb.
Will this be compatible with ADSL 2+?.
The other concern I have is that I'm a good 2 miles from the exchange with a reported attenuation up/down of 24/43 db on 7488 with a down SNR typically of 8 db. Interleaving on.
With the Thomson and DMT I have in the past tweaked the Target SNM, which I believe I won't be able to do on ADSL 2+.
I haven't lost sync for 185 days since the last re-boot I initiated.
I am not using DMT to increase the Target SNM, as I have at times in the past ie to improve reliability.
When I have achieved higher speeds, which I probably would now if I re-booted, the connection has been less reliable and I would rather avoid the Target SNM increasing and dropping my speed for extended periods.
Am I likely to get much of an increase in speed or is it likely that I could get a less reliable connection ?.
I have a Billion 7402 VL which is over 5 years old, have upgraded the firmware to what I believe is the latest ie 552g and I believe I could use that instead if need be although it's obviously a good age - similar to the Thomson when I think about it.
Any advice appreciated.
