1.0 out of 5 stars Over priced and not that great, 15 Feb. 2011
This review is from: Billion BiPAC 7800N Dual WAN ADSL2+/Broadband Wireless-N Gigabit Firewall Modem Router (Electronics)
I also bought this because it had so many good reviews. I found it very easy to set up the router but impossible even with the help of their tech support to set up a simple web cam. I also found that on occasion when I switched my computer on the signal was not present. It took a router hardware reset to get it back again. I dug out my old router and got the webcam working in a flash and sent the Billion one back.

I didn't see any speed improvement with the Billion over my old router either. Bit of a dead loss unfortunately.

All in all definitely not worth the extra money over other top line routers on here.
