Hi all,

I have a Linksys router which is ADSL2.

Can someone tell me the difference between ADSL2 & ADSL2+.

As i am ADSL1 and will be updating to ADSL2+, will this affect my download or capability to use the net???

First off, simply having an ADSL2 or 2+ router will not automatically give you increased bandwidth unless your ISP supports those new standards, but if your ISP does support them then you will benefit by having a higher bandwidth compared to what is possible with the original standard (ADSL1). The difference between ADSL1->ADSL2->ADSL2+ is mainly that of the ability to handle higher bandwidth/faster downloads and a 'cleaner' signal between exchange and your router -- particularly where old lines are being used or where you are 'on the borderline' as regards the maximum line length from your exchange.
