Draytek Vigor 2860 series:

Looks like Draytek have recently (it wasn't there last week) released "G.INP / Vectoring beta firmware" for the above.
They tell me it supports G.INP in both the up- and down-stream ... so long as the MSAN does too of course.

Nothing showing for the 2760 yet.

We've only installed two of these so far, as the official release firmware has been a bit flaky to say the least.
Though our issues have been with DHCP and routing policy failures and not with the VDSL2 modem, which has been very stable, on these two lines anyway.

Both are connected to ECI M41 cabs unfortunately.
Not wishing to poke a hornets nest with a stick; as they are both "working" in commercial premises, I won't be touching them, unless they go t*ts up, until after BTOR have finished faffing around with their M41s.

If anyone tries this beta, I would be interested to know how it goes.

They appear to block direct linky to the downloads page:
http://www.draytek.co.uk/support/downloads

But at least they haven't blocked their own homepage:

Cheers,

Hi Bill and welcome. 

Thanks for that info - I'll put it on the g.inp thread too. :)

I heard at the weekend that there were issues with the 2850 and although there isnt a beta yet, they are working on it.

Hi

Signed up to John Lewis fibre... was given a Netgear WNR2200, sadly this went to the great scrap heap in the ethernet :(
internal ip routing gave up :o , so was using my trusty Billion 7800n as a stop gap.
I've now got a Fritzbox 3490 and after a bit of teeth nashing, it's all up and running, but no G.INP on my exchange.

Regards
Robin

Hi Kitz,

You can add the Netgear D7000 to the list as supporting G.INP. Seems to be running well on my line so far.

Tempting.    I notice by the way that the chipset is 63168 and not 6368 as noted in the leading post of this thread.

Cheers Les, typo on my part  :-[   Now corrected.
I looked at its  specs last year and found it had a BCM63138

Is the ZyXEL telnet interface the standard Broadcom one or is it customised?

Its web gui is the same as the VMG8324 and since they both use the same chipset.  Zyxel usually arent in the habit of locking down firmware and tend to leave all the BCM CLI alone * In fact one of the reasons that I like mine is not only do they leave access alone, but build on the CLI and it to bring it to the web-gui too.   

*Unless obviously its requested by an ISP specific build  eg Eirecoms F1000 is a VMG8324 with customised f/w....  yet other ISPs (such as kcom/eclipse) sell it with the standard Zyxel firmware.   I cant imagine AAISP being one of those would would get custom and locked down f/w.

For me it's kind of annoying having to use the combined VDSL2 modem and router (BrightBox2 )as just a router it has a BCM63168 chipset but no access to telnet or DSLstats have to use the old HG612 for that, yet the BCM36168 is far better on my line than whats in the HG612.

Kitz, you should also add the recently launched Netgear D7800 to the list. No idea which VDSL2 chipset it uses, but i understand this is the first Mu-Mimo VDSL2 router and even if its half as good as my Linkys EA8500 (a standalone Mu-Mimo router) then the D7800 will blow the other routers for speed & range.

You can also add the new Asus RT-AC88U, has a insane 8 gigabit ports, not available yet, but already supported in Merlin firmware.

Afraid not as it is a RT model, router only so no VDSL modem built in. Looks pretty nice though!!
