QuoteOriginally posted by: playercan someone explain the difference between an ADSL and DSL router?Not much. Technically, ADSL is Asymmetric DSL because the upload bandwidth is less than then download bandwidth. In practice, many "DSL" services are asymmetric. If you don't upload much data (e.g., aren't sending large files out or operating a busy server), then ADSL is fine. If you are uploading/serving data, then you need to pay attention to the upload bandwidth and subscriber terms (which may prohibit operating a server or block certain ports such as 80).
