turns out the latest dlink-2520u has also suffered the same fate, known as the Z2 variant
No more broadcom. If you want broadcom in a modem look elsewhere or get an integrated wireless (switch it off) to have a modem with a broadcom chipset.
So what is the big deal with a broadcom in the modem anyway ?
more stable if you live 2.5km or further from the exchange. If you live closer a trendchip will sync faster though faster is meaningless when quotas are applied. How does a realtek compare, i suppose i will find out. Tweaked the SNR on the original 2502u and it seems stable so the realtek variant will sit in the box until the incumbent dies.
Just playing about the cli its totally different.
I got the Dlink 2520U ADSL modem, and I conked off after a year, please suggest a decent robust modem. I was under the impression this will last me sometime, in retrospect the Beetel 220bx from Airtel lasted longer that this piece of junk.
The connection is on 24x7, modem -> TP link 941ND-> Asus n66u access point->Asus N13BU.
Please suggest a suitable option.
