    I've just ordered an ADSL line for an upcoming office move, which BT have confirmed is ADSL2

    The site currently has a Cisco 837 router - I think that I can use this on the ADSL2 line (can anyone confirm?) but I'm wondering if it's worth buying an 877 router to get ADSL 2 speeds.

    Has anyone noticed a big difference?

    Thanks

    I don't think the 83x does ADSL2/2+ so you would be limited max of 8mb, the 877 does do ADSL2/2+ but if you require Annex M support(upto 2.5mb upload) than you would need the M version of the 877.

    Thanks, you're right on the 837 not supporting ADSL2 so I guess it'll work for the initial move but it's probably worth upgrading the router at some point.

    I'll need to run a few speed tests to see what they're getting at the moment and what the max should be on ADSL2
