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.Read more ›
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.
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:
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.Read more ›
After many fruitless calls to TalkTalk trying to sort this out trying different manual line profiles etc I decided to take the plunge and get a new router myself to see what effect this would have on my overall experience. After all it couldn't be any worse than what I had been used to!
I did a lot of research and eventually decided to get this Billion BiPAC 7800N as it had both Wireless N and also the built-in ethernet switch is gigabit which gives me some added functionality for having say a NAS box in the future without needing to buy a seperate gigabit switch.
The service from Amazon was faultless as usual and delivery was very quick.
On unboxing the unit the first thing that strikes you is it's industrial looks - it's chunky and it's not going to wim any prizes for it's looks. But when you get it fired up and get into the menus etc you will quickly see that Billion have spent the money where it's really needed - on the inside!
The quick setup was very easy to use and within about 5 minutes I had both the ADSL connected and the wireless up and running.Read more ›
