I'm thinking about asking my ISP to switch me from an interleaved to a fastpath ADSL2+ setup. However, do I need a modem that supports this, or is fastpath supported by all ADSL2+ modems?

My "gateway" device (router/switch/modem combo) is a very old and very basic BaudTec T263R1 (Conn X).

  • Are you sure your modem is even using interleaving? With ADSL2+, it's only activated on-demand. – Daniel B Mar 9 '14 at 9:53
  • @DanielB AFAIK, interleaving is the default so that users don't complain about connection drop-outs. But unfortunately, my modem doesn't tell me if the connection is interleaved (the modem is something like 9 years old.) It's not mentioned anywhere, which is why I don't know if fastpath is even supported by all modems. – Nikos C. Mar 9 '14 at 10:06
