hio77: if you feel a boost in upstream isnt worth having VDSL, then thats your choice. personally the boost in upload is worth it in its weight in gold alone.


A lot of assumptions are being made here. :S I never said that increased UL speed wasn't worth it.
You seem to have latched on to a topic that is unrelated to my original question. That was "Why is my ASUS N66U preforming slower than the HG 659?"
I have been given an answer... "Not all chip sets will sync the same" and the advice is to forget about the DSL-N66U and just use the HG659.

That is fine IF we don't have to return the HG659 to Vodafone... If we are charged for it then we are out of pocket for the N66U (I should point out that at the time we purchased the N66U the Vodafone website didn't not mention what hardware would be supplied. It just said 'modem'. It has since been updated)... then we have a device that's sitting around not being used. Money wasted.

I just want to know that I have exhausted every avenue in trying to get the N66U working before I end up putting it a box and packing it away. Is that too much to ask?

"... the Exchange is located roughly 800m away"
"... line attenuation down 18dB"
It's a miracle that you have VDSL at all, let alone "19450 kbit/s DOWN and 7520 kbit/s UP"
Be happy smile
