    compare Speedtouch 716WL with the 780WL


    Can anyone tell me what the difference is between two speedtouch VoIP
    routers, the 716WL and the 780WL?

    Thanks. Yes, I have seen a refurbished price for the 716WL and it is
    very reasonble. I once had a 780WL which was excellent until it
    developed a fault and I replaced it with a Zoom. Since then I have had
    bandwith problems with my VoIP and would welcome the opportunity to get
    back to Speedtouch.

    I've seen the refurbished 716WL at

    http://www.digidave.co.uk/jshop/prod...FaAA4wod9hZLnQ

    I assume refurbished means that they are some stock that can't be sold
    as new. The last time I was involved with refurbishing it was just
    repacking a few hundred brand new TV's that had power leads in
    slightly melted (fire damage) polythene bags.

    That's an interesting thought. That is the one I have seen and have now
    ordered one. I was assuming that they were ones that had been defective
    and then repaired. Your theory sounds even better. At 18, I don't even
    care if it has any external blemishes; just as long as it works
    correctly. I especially want the VoIP to work correctly. It always used
    to with the old 780. Goodness knows why the bandwidth problem with the
    Zoom (actually a Zoom X6 with a VoIP ATA) but it makes phone calls very
    difficult.
