So impressed. Had it running more or less just a few clicks out of the box. Set it up on O2 LLU (ETH0A) broadband no trouble at all. I get a better SNR, web pages load much faster (whereas previously I had been thinking it was my ISP's slow DNS servers). Even my PING time has improved!

I previously wasted money (by trying to 'save money') by buying a separate gigabit switch and then attaching that to a flakey modem/router. By going 'cheap' you ALWAYS end up spending more in the long run! So I'm glad I bought this.

This just 'feels' professional (OK, it looks like a brick) but it feels solid.

As I work from home, I use VOIP for conference calls, Lotus sametime for powerpoints, while my son spends half-term break hammering the line with World of Warcraft! This box prioritises my calls (QoS) and doesn't bat an eyelid, like some other routers I've had. Many a time, I've had to reset previous routers, when they got overloaded or decided just to lose wireless connection when for no apparent reason.

The start-up screen was so easy - its even the first page the PC opened before I could even type in: 192.168.1.254! All menues are intuitive. Ok, as a man, I don't read manuals, but within 4 clicks and I was online. It even picked up the correct TIME for the event and security logs. There's loads of advanced menues, if you need them: dynamic DNS, Virtual server (port mapping, DMZ, ALG), IGMP, Wake-on-lan, time schedule, intrusion detection, UpNp, SnMp, Remote access, packet/mac/URL filtering, QoS, firmware upgrade, flash config save, the list goes on and on.

But if you want it simple, the default is BASIC and easy. No, really.

Purchased one to replace my second failed BT Home Hub 2. What a change. Instead of flaky connection at 150 Mbps, I now have solid 300 Mbps Wifi across my entire house. And its never dropped yet. The setup was done in about 2 mins flat. Sure, it's ugly compared to some routers but what you want is it to work. The only drama I had was assigning a fixed IP to a device on my network. Seems somewhat difficult for no particular reason (you have to copy and paste a MAC address from the DHCP allocation table. In other routers you just click and select the IP you want). That said it does work when you've set it up.

2 week update

Since installing this router I have noted the broadband speed has gone up from 3 Mbps with the BT HomeHub 2 to 5 Mbps with the Billion. BT really are peddling some crap kit. Never again.

4 month update

Unbelieveable. It just works. Never a dropped connection, never a stutter. Speed has crept up another meg too! It is what technology should be...fast, reliable and better than expected. I wish my Dyson vac was like that....instead its slow, broken and crap!

1 year update

Still solid. The latest firmware update 1.06d was easily done and adds IPv6. The system has beautifully mated up to a Synology and I shall be getting another one of these to replace my Dad's crap BT home hub.

4 year update

Still running (24/7 for 4 years). So stable, configurable and capable. Love it.

This is the best ADSL wireless modem router - especially if live far from the phone exchange.

In the last 4 years I've been through 6 mode routers, D-Link, Netgear, Zyxel, Belkin.
All of them but Belkin (F5D8636-4 v2) broke over time but even the Belkin was very frequently (every few minutes + fluctuating speeds) disconnecting internet during moderate/heavy wireless activity (not sure why to this day - but it's well know problem with Belkin wirelless, fine over cable).

I live ~4.8km (attentuation 64-65db with SNR 6db) from the exchange and according to every broadband checker I should have 0,5 to no more than 1MB.

D-Link, Netgear, Zyxel got me 1.2-1.3MB
Belkin initially got me 1.4MB
Belkin with iplate, removed bellwire and extension wire got me 1.8MB

Guess what. Billion got me 2.4MB, rock stable, no more disconnecting no matter traffic (I have 5 WLAN clients and 2 LAN),I guess it's their PhyR technology which reduces noise - important on long lines.

Now all the good and bad points:

Good:
1) Fantastic ADSL performance on very long line
2) Excellent wireless (802.11n) performance
3) Rock stable with heavy ADSL and wireless traffic
4) Very easy setup
5) Lot of features

Bad (well I would say these are comments rather than bad points):
1) Large and rather ugly comparing to other brands (I don't care though, I need broadband to work as well as possible so I value function only)
2) Couldn't find option to turn off DHCP with static IP configuration for the devices
3) Not very flexible in MAC access configuration
4) Couldn't find option to change it's MAC address

Overall it's 5/5 with no hesitation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Brilliant! 24 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase
One of my work colleagues highly recommended this router so decided to try it out...and so glad i did! It uses the latest Broadcom 6358 chipset so is rock solid even on long lines; its kept me connected for more than 20 days so far. It has gigabit lan, superb wireless coverage, IPv6 compatible (with future firmware), cable and FTTC ready. But the best thing about it is that it allows you to decrease/increase your downstream SNR to increase sync speed or to increase line stability respectively; however this only works on firmware v1.06a and above so make sure you're using the latest firmware.

To adjust downstream SNR margin simply enter
192.168.1.254/snr.cgi
in your browser and enter one of the values below and save.

standard values are.
200 = +6dB
150 = +3dB
100 = +0dB
50 = -3dB
25 = -4.5db
1 = -5.5dB

The command does not accept negative numbers. However the command can be tricked into accepting negative numbers by entering high positive numbers.

65500 = -9dB
65480 = -9.5dB
65450 = -12dB

So for example if your current downstream SNR is 12db, entering 50 would give you a new SNR of 9db or entering 65500 would give you 3db.
