@burakkucat - I did once do that very same experiment using my old beloved Netgear DG834v3 and found that every exchange around here had the same chipset identifier as NSBFD.

Did Mrs Weaver put some of my catnip into your breakfast bowl?  :-\

I read "NSBFD" as the serving telephony exchange identifier . . . i.e. North Scotland Broadford.

Sorry, I meant "as at NSBFD", missed out the word "at".

Ah, I see. Inserting that missing two letter word makes all the difference.  ;)

Could you obtain some assistance to temporarily connect your DG834v3 to any one of your three circuits and then interrogate the DSLAM/MSAN as to the chipset on its line-card?

I think all the BT exchanges recently upgraded to WBC/ADSL2+ use Broadcom line-card chipsets.

Thank you for that information. I think it would be helpful if "those who can" will please check.
