hi to all,
i installed openwrt on this fritzbox, which is now (from a few hours ago) being used as dsl bridge device.
it replaced my ISP modem, which was giving me faster speeds than fritz was able to do with original fritzOS. with openwrt and changing the tones profile, i got to the point i'm showing you in this topic.
the DL speed is roughly the same as with ISP modem, but uplink is lower (was able to get to 8mbit on old modem, mostly staying about 7.5mbit).
your ISP modem is also based on a Broadcom xDSL chip
the Fritz!Box 7362sl has a Lantiq xDSL modem
In another forum it was suggested that the difference in line speed might be caused by better compatibility between the xDSL chips from the same vendor.
Of course, you could experiment with different xDSL firmware for the Lantiq modem in the Fritz!Box:
But if you want to maximize the line speed, I suggest to put the ISP modem back into service and set it to bridge mode if possible. Use the Fritz!Box with OpenWrt as a router/firewall and do not use its built-in modem. This way you get the benefits of OpenWrt without reducing the line speed. The disadvantage is increased power and space usage since there are now two devices running instead of one.
so it's down to kind of incompatibility , hm nothing to do here.
yes the isp modem was already in bridge and i have a tplink 1043n as a router, the same now with fritzbox (it's only a modem).
i'll probably sell it then and return to isp modem.
