Hi guys

I just found out that our exchange now supports up to 20meg adsl! Now, I have a Asus DSL-n14u router - on Asus's website it doesn't say anything about VDSL, but it is ADSL2 and ADSL2+ allowing speed of up to 24mbps down.

From the site:

ADSL/ADSL2/ADSL2+ multimode AnnexA,AnnexB compliant
ADSL 2/2+ 24Mbps downstream
Support Annex A/B/I/J/L/M

Will this work with Telkom's VDSL? Or must I have a VDSL router instead? The lady on the phone couldn't clarify. I have upgraded to 10meg for the time being (still waiting for that to kick in though), and the plan is to see how stable that is, and if it's fine, and my router allows for it, I'll go up to the 20meg.

Thanks for your help in advance!

Cheers
Rudi

I had the ASUS-N14U before getting my VDSL. While i was able to get 20mb ADSL2 it wasnt running very stable. ASSIA decided it would rather sync up at around 15mb

Had telkom out and they suggested that i get VDSL Modem and have the modulation changed to VDSL as there is less overheads and they suggested it would run better.

Got myself the ASUS DSL-N66U and had them change the modulation. While i get a few crc errors, my line is rock stable at 20mb now
Loving it!

Hey rudivdw,

Thanks for the support. We have a new VDSL Model that is Duo-band and Wireless AC, when you're ready for that upgrade.
