Broadcom DSL

  • Broadcom has not released any FOSS drivers. Broadcom doesn’t support open-source much at all.
  • LEDE / OpenWrt use only FOSS drivers. Fully open-source support for Broadcom DSL chips does not exist.

Consequences

DSL will not work with OpenWrt on devices with BCM63xx SoC.

For details see Unsupported features and soc.broadcom.bcm63xx.

With that in mind (no or only limited open source support of Broadcom devices), it's up to you whether to buy Broadcom devices or not.

Infobox for dataentries

DSL will not work at all on devices with BCM63xx DSL chipset (due to unavailability of FLOSS driver for Broadcom chips). Consider this when chosing a device to buy, or when deciding to flash OpenWrt on your device because it is listed as supported.
See broadcom_dsl, dsl_modem and soc.broadcom.bcm63xx for details.

Infobox for ToHs

DSL will not work at all on devices with BCM63xx DSL chipset (due to unavailability of FLOSS driver for Broadcom chips). Consider this when chosing a device to buy, or when deciding to flash OpenWrt on your device because it is listed as supported. See broadcom_dsl, dsl_modem and soc.broadcom.bcm63xx for details.
