perhaps you can share some ideas with me on which box to purchase; I've by far outgrown my trusty-crusty ol' 803 running a VPN with an amazing 40kBit/s off a 16meg WAN line backed by ISDN, plugged to an external 802' AP.
Deutsche Telekom offers a bunch of services ever since my ADSL link was put into service; I can read from the new 800 Series they deal with VDSL as well, so the 886VAW looks like a appropriate choice for classic DSL service along with WLAN.
Now, that Deutsche Telekom offers their next-generation telephony service backed by VOIP, I will most certainly run into troublesome issues if I select the wrong device. I wonder if the WAN-NIC in the 886 VAW will deal with what they are running on their side for this type of uplink where you plug your phone into the router itself. I'm close to moving away from here and I guess I will brick the new unit if it cannot deal with that,
Can someone shed some light on this ?
of course it will run on DSL..... My initial Q was geared towards the situation that DTAG is in the completion phase of
letting everything run via VoIP, meaning they will scrap the consumer ISDN service branch in a large scale. I' d rather prefer having my own gear here than any t-com router, and if anyone has experience with this next-gen connections on a 800....the 887VAW is quite new, looks good......
