Excellent router !
Many have commented on getting a speed increase with the Billion routers and I can confirm that. Mine went from around 6500kbps with my old Netgear router to 8480kbps with this new Billion router. The features and functions are surprisingly advanced for a router of this cost and I doubt I'll use half of them but it's good to know they're available if I ever do. Not had any drop outs or freezes or lags since it was installed and the 802.11n wireless support is a real plus.
Basic setup is failry straight forward and there's a quick start wizard if you're not too comfortable with doing it manually. Some of the features and settings are more technical than some might be comfortable with and the manual supplied on the CD that came with the unit is one of those that tells you how to enter infomation into the router but not why you're doing it. Coming from a technical background I could understand a lot of it but some of the settings were not obvious. I'd like a bit more information along the lines of "this function does this and here's why you might want to do it and this is how it works" whereas you tend to get stuff like "this is the IP box, put the IP address here". I can work that out myself thanks, I want to know what will happen when I put the IP address in that box and why it could be useful to me, but if you just want a basic setup then the quick start wizard will see you right.
Overall very impressed with this product and would definitely recommend it.
