Guys, I have spotted some cisco sb 107 adsl routers going for a good price. the reason, they are not ADSL2.
I get ~4-6 mb/sec from telecom with my thompson, will I nessaryly loose this with a non adsl2 modem? I noted another post whereby someone got a similar or even better thru put from his adsl then his new adsl2 device.
Im cabling my house and want a nice solid box as router/switch and thought this would be ideal. What a pity those firebox devices dont have an adsl modem built in as some of those are going for a song too...

cheers
john

I would not consider anything that does not support ADSL2+. There is just no point locking yourself into old technology.

If your ADSL line is really bad, then ADSL2+ won't help it, so it could be worth considering for a year or two.

ADSL can do speeds up to 8 mb/sec, so a cisco router & switch for $65 will do me fine...

In my experience your upload speeds may be considerably better on ADSL 2+. I trust this is for personal use and you're not putting old second hand equipment into a business environement.

Id be tempted to put the xtra modem in front of the cisco router, and turn everything possible off, and use it just as an ADSL 2+ interface.

That's if you really want to use the cisco router. Else there are cheapish, and far better ASDL2+ routers than the garbage Telecom gives you.
