More than 1 Mbit upstream...

    I'm the lucky customer of an ISP in Denmark who can give me 2 Mbit in upload.
    They gave me a Zyxel router but I do not like Zyxel products at all.

    Is it really true that non of the Linksys ADSL2+ modem can manage 2 Mbit upstream?

    I have already an AG241 and I only get 1 Mbit out of it in upstream.. the Zyxel is crap for many other things, but can handle that upstream.

    Any help...?

    To handle more than 1Mbps, the device must be compliant with the "ITU G.992.5 Annex M" standard !

    The "ITU G.992.5" standard from the Linksys product specifications seems not sufficient...

    I have the AG241 V2, so I cannot install the driver you refer about..

    ..Unless it's OK anyway.

    Annex M is correct.

    Any 3rd party firmware supported by AG 241 V2?

    Thanks and regards

    Well some sourcecode is on the website so definitely possible - but you should really hassle Linksys in your country, this is a pretty new router and this is a basic function should be supported - if as I suspect, they just need to incorporate the latest DSP driver from Ti.

    Thanks for all answers..
    Linksys in DK confirmed that there is no Annex M product in Europe and no firmware available to handle more than 1 Mbit.

    Can you guys help me with a 3rd party firmware for V2?..
    I would really avoid bricking the AG241.. So I would like a very detailed explanation is "possible".

    Thanks in advance

    I think you need to join the Australian Whirlpool forums, where some expert user by the username of "Bored Individual" regularly builds code for his V1 AG241. To develop your own firmware you need to know how to recover from a brick using bootloader tftp etc, and you really need a serial console cable to see what is going on. Adding the DSP7 driver in place of the old one is probably straightforward (been done before), then needs web page updates to access/view. Tracking down obscure kernel bugs exposed by any change could take a bit longer! You will also have the nagging doubt that there is some fix the official firmware has that is not included in the published source - it is never possible to generate binary identical firmware as file dates/times get built into the firmware filesystem - to make one same size would be good test though!

    I'm just glad there ar many Bored clients in the WRT54G camp :) without them we would be cursing our routers hehe

    Thanks both..
    I saw the forum you referred, and it's truly very interesting.

    I could not find something yet.. but will register there and ask.

    But check out the personal attention bimbobo is getting down under! It seems DSP 7 is not needed, but default Linksys firmware doesn't have Telnet which can be used to force Annex M...

    Mais mon Francais n'est pas trop bon!

    Bimbobo has now been given a DSP 7 version of the AG241 EU firmware with web screen support Telnet enabled. Would be good if some-one could offer web hosting for the firmware images...

    I don't care, my English is not much better...

    Hi owners of an AG 241..
    Follow this thread...

    The firmware made by Bored Individual is great and annex M is 100% working with no issue at all

    Thanks for guiding me to that amazing forum!!!

    But this one is not worse... anyway!!

    Check here for a custom firmware, hope one fits for you in Australia too.
    This firmware has Annex M unlocked in the menu too. (No idea if it fits for you). All you need is to upgrade it from webinterface.

    P.S.: I just checked and saw an AU version of the router, I guess this should be Australia :) there is an extra firmware for that one.
    Btw why do ppl talk about australia here, since the guy wants to use it in Denmark? :D anyway, you can find there EU/DE/AU firmwares. Hope it helps.

    The internet make the world a smaller place! There's also a forum for this Phoenix firmware here (somewhere between EU and USA...)
