Hi Darryl, I looked up those pages and it looks like this is specific for standalone routers, not "gateways" - namely combinations of a
dsl-modem and a router. I wonder if something similar can be done to
these devices as well.
The reason I am asking is that I have an old Linksys device - WAG200G - which does not work properly lately and the official firmware update did not solve the issue (the device seems to lose the DSL connection every now and then).
At the same time I am considering a switch towards VDSL - and it seems I need a totally different device for that. But - is there really a hardware difference between ADSL and VDSL modems, or one can turn an older ADSL
device into VDSL by flashing firmware?
