Wow! and Phew - Installs like a Dream !!!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Billion BiPAC 7800DXL Triple WAN Dual Band Wireless N Gigabit ADSL2+/Fibre 3G/4G LTE Broadband Router with USB Port (Accessory)
I knew it was time to replace my old Netgear DG834G - it was getting extremely hot and then last week it would no longer make contact to my Mac desktop by ethernet which was worrying.
I did a lot of research before buying the Billion 7800DXL - in truth it's spec was way over my requirements - I don't have fibre connection (probably never will in the rural area I live in) - but I wanted reliability, stability, good wireless signal and something that would make the most of my 7.5kbs broadband speed from my ISP Xilo/Uno.
The parcel arrive this morning - next day delivery as promised by Amazon Prime (really recommend this service too!). So, this afternoon, I bit the bullet, told my Social Media Group I may disappear for a while and prepared for installation.
Well, I needn't have worried, my new Billion modem router installed like a dream !!!
I had read that the disc supplied wouldn't work on my Mac - but after powering everything up according to the Quick Install Guide and opening up my Google Chrome browser with trepidation - up popped the prompt screen! I was ready with all the information from my old Netgear - pages of stuff like PPPoA, Mac and IP addresses etc. - but all that was actually required were the ISP User Name and Password. In they went and off it went to configure - 2 minutes later (!!!) I was back online. It had taken longer to take it out of the packaging than to set it up.
It even connected to the Netgear booster on the landing - all by itself - even the old modem didn't do that although they were the same make !!!
I never usually review the products I buy from Amazon - but this was worth of a 5 star comment.
Now all I have to do is connect up the TV to make it as 'Smart' as it's supposed to be ;)
