Good morning

Could someone please explain the different variants of the 8800axl? There appears to be a black one and a white one. The white one is marked as new on the billion website but it appears in forum posts from a while ago. I'm not sure which is the newest. Also the black one is marked R2 is there an R1 version.

Any info welcome thanks
Shaun

The 8800AXL (v1 white device) is the older device discontinued around 2 to 3 years ago (chipset BCM 63168)

The 8800AXL (R2 balck device) is the newer/current model (chipset BCM63167)

Thanks very much for the info. I'll stick with the r2 then. I wonder why the white one is marked as new on the website?
