Which adsl routers available in nz work the best now and in the future with telecom cabinets ?
I have a linksys ag310 which only connects at 300Kbps upstream to the cabinet but downstream is fine at 17000kbps.
if I changed to another adsl router, which are the ones to change to and ensure I stay compatible for a while...

Hi, Broadcom chipsets are the most compatible, the original ADSL1/2/2+ cards in the cabinets use Broadcom chipsets, and the newer ADSLX/VDSL2 cards use Ikanos chipsets that from experience have no issues with Broadcom CPE chipsets.

Therefore NetComm/Dynalink, some Netgear (there is a small Netgear with one USB and one Lan port that can be easily half bridged) and all TP-Link modems sport Broadcom chipsets.

Personally I only ever supply TP-Link for jobs, a TD-8840 costs around $70, and if you want wireless aswell then around $100 will get a N model. Also TP-Link uses Atheros Wireless chipsets which are one of the best out there.

Below is a couple of links, should not take much for you to find other models in the range from the same site.
