ISP blows the whistle on router chip 'fault'

DSL Angel
Jobs Halo


I discovered there is physical layer issues with the AR 7 when testing ADSL 2 + CPE nearly two years ago for a UK ISP!!! - When compared to other vendors such as Wintegra, Broadcom and Infinion chipsets.

TI can and have improved this performance and it depends on the PHY code that the router vendor has embedded in their router firmware.

Thats half the story, not to mention also the routers analogue front end design, this varies from manufacturer to manufacturer and "cheap routers" often have reference design front ends which perform less well against those who research and design their own, which i beleive Thomson do for their Speedtouch range.
