Router Compatibility with high speed broadband

With the advent of high speed (up to 8MB) broadband, some older routers may not benefit from the new speed increases. Most routers supplied by Orpheus have already been ADSL2/8MB capable, but the following chart will provide details on the specifications of various routers.

If you have a router not listed and are thinking of subscribing to our fast broadband connections, please contact us with the make and model details of your router and we'll see if we can find out the specifications of it.
