I think the Netgear D7800 uses a Lantiq VRX320 chip for its DSL (and Atheros chips for everything else).

@ Kitz
Some months ago you posted on the Plusnet forum that "With mine I can terminate my Plusnet session without having to drop sync.   I just click a button in the web gui, then click it again to reconnect & get a new session.   There are several other routers that do this too".

Having struggled with umpteen reboots on a TP-Link VR900 and my line speed plummeting, it's clear that rebooting just the router side would be extremely useful.

Could you by any chance list which modem routers do this ?  Is it all the Billions and ZyXels by any chance ... ?  Any others ?

I'm looking forward to your reply so I can do a little research over Christmas ...  ::)

Hi sorry, missed this post earlier.

Unfortunately I dont think it will be one of the things I can add to the list as it is supposed to be a summary rather than full tech specs.
The difficulty with listing this, is quite often its not obvious that a particular router has this facility until you are familiar with the GUI.
That said I think most Billions and Zyxels do offer it.

The Netgear D7000 uses BCM63138, not BCM63168.

The tp-link TD-W9970 is a cheap vdsl2/adsl modem router with broadcom chipset

I only discovered this list after I'd trawled through the manufacturers websites, so here are a few models you're missing. They're all Wireless AC as that was my criteria.

TrendNET TEW-816DRM 65

Linksys X6200 80

Asus DSL-AC56U 110

I poked through the firmware for the 4 new (to me) Asus models, to determine the DSL chipset, or at least which DSL chipset vendor.

DSL-AC56U: MediaTek (driver module: tc3162_dmt.ko)
DSL-AC52U: MediaTek (driver module: tc3162_dmt.ko)
DSL-N17U: MediaTek (driver module: tc3162_dmt.ko)
DSL-N16: MediaTek (driver module: tc3162_dmt.ko)

The TrendChip (DSL) and RaLink (wireless) companies merged, the resulting company is MediaTek.

The TC3162 chipset is as used in the DLink DSL-320B-Z1 ?

Admin Note to self - DSL-320B-Z1 is adsl only

There is a limit to what you can find from looking through the firmware, there may well be common drivers that work with more than one chip, or, perhaps in this case, someone decided to keep using an old file name with newer generations of hardware.

Looking at the AC56U firmware, there's also mt7510ptm and mt7510sar kernel modules (PTM as used with VDSL2, SAR probably an abbreviation for "segmentation and re-assembly", for ATM). The tc3162_dmt.ko contains strings with MT7510, MT7555, and 3262L1Afe3095 and 3262L1Afe60901 - it seems to have a lot of different things for different DSLAM chip vendors (as will other modems).

So I'm pretty confident it's a MediaTek DSL chip, but I can't tell which specific chip from looking at the firmware. Which exact chip might be provided from the running device, in some stats or logs or command output, or failing that, opening one up and reading what's written on the chip itself.

I used binwalk on the TRENDnet TEW-816DRM firmware 1.0.0.1. It must have a MediaTek VDSL2 chipset, like the Asus devices.

Thanks, info added

It looks like the AC1600 TP-Link VR600 is now out.

Hi

https://www.asus.com/Networking/DSL-AC87VG/
apparently uses Broadcom BCM63138
am I right in thinking this chipset supports g-fast?

Just because a data sheet mentions a chip can support a certain technology doesn't mean the products that use it will or can in the future.  It takes more than just a chip to enable G-Fast.  If Asus isn't selling the router with G.Fast, then with 100% certainty it will not support it now or anytime in the future.

Regards

Phil
