broadcom also you should get your upstream uncapped.
Hi! I meant which version number of Broadcom.smile

Why do you suggest uncapping the upstream, particularly in relation to this thread?

For maximum stability, you need to tweak your SNRM at night. It would be better for you if you bought a router that allowed you to self-tweak it.

Have you any particular in mind? By self tweak, what do you mean?

Any views on the 7700N which is somewhat cheaoer?


The 7700N is a budget version of the 7800N and while i wouldn't say its poor, the 7800N is far superior. The 7800N uses a more powerful chipset broadcom 6358, whilst the 7700N uses 6328. The 7800N has more RAM, has better wifi range, gigabit ports and SNR can be tweaked through the web page whereas you need to faff around with telnet commands to tweak the snr on the 7700N and unlike the 7800N, you lose the tweaked SNR on the 7700N every time the router is rebooted. If you can afford it, id strongly recommend going for the 7800N (have a look at the amazon reviews), however if its way out of your budget, then the 7700N is a good cheaper alternative.
Thanks for advice. 7800N definitely out of my league and note the disadvantage of the need to reboot for the 7700N. I tend to leave router on 24/7, so presumably it will be an infrequent problem.

Is that Broadcom too; 6xxx? How's it relate to 7700N?

In that case, go for the Billion 7700N. Again if you're not happy with it just return it back to Amazon for a full refund (obviously keep the packaging)

(use putty client if necessary)

If you do go for it, let us know how you find it smile

Found the specs of the Billion 7700 and the TP-Link TD-W8960N, and have set out differences below. Bold is Billion, Light TP. Can someone advice the (degree of) importance of them, please?
