Summary: I am using this with Telstra 4G Sierra 320U. I notice that the speed when using the 6200NXL is 20Mbps but when I connect the 320U directly to a laptop at the same location I get 30Mbps. It would appear that the 6200NXL is not able to provide the full throughput. OzCableguy: More info on this limitation on some routers in my 3G FAQ here .
Summary: With the updated firmware version 1.04e.dc1 from Billion’s support website, this unit will support the Telstra USB 4G dongle (Sierra AirCard 320U). The LED labeled "3G" goes from amber to green not long after the Billion is powered on, and after another minute or so, the LED labeled "Internet" automatically goes from amber to green. This coincides with the LEDs on the Sierra 320U going solid, indicating that there’s an internet connection.
Summary: SUPURB device!! Owned one of these for well over 12 months. Has worked and continues to serve us well. We can only get Telstra 3G Internet and this device has provided faultless operation. For a great quality, no frills, no fuss and easy to setup 3G router, give this one a look ;) [312U Sierra device on Bigpond].
Summary: Fantastic forum. Thanks to all previous posts, and additional information on the site. I just upgraded from the Telstra 3G 308 USB dongle to the Telstra 4G 320U. After a firmware upgrade on the 6200NXL to the latest (Billion_6200NXL_1.04c.afw) ..... I was up and running in 10 minutes. PS. 4G speed is amazing !!!! Thanks for the links and info again.
Summary: I am glad to report that this 6200NXL is great,and I am perhaps the first to use it here in Saudi Arabia, with the ISP of Mobily using the Sierra Wireless 312U 42Mbps modem. Great deal, but impossible to buy here in Saudi Arabia, had to fly them into Dubai and the go there to pick up. Wish there was a retailer who sold them here in Saudi Arabia. Need to buy more of these routers can anyone help????
Summary: Hi can anyone recommend a router compatible with BigPond ultimate sierra, the Billion 6200 we were recommended is not compatible, help, we are not that computer savvy! Big pond won’t help. Note from OzCableguy: The 6200NXL is compatible with Telstra Ultimate and works fine for most people. Contact Billion Support for help rather than Telstra though. However, any troubles will usually turn out to be one of the causes mentioned in my FAQ here .
Summary: Beyond helping with internet set up the Billion support is non existent.!! Telstra modem works fine however I cannot get printers to route through this modem. Despite 3 emails and 3 phone calls, Billion ignore my urgent requests for help. It is now 4 days and they ignore help requests. I will never purchase Billion again! Update: Printer issues have been solved but Internet stability with the 312U has been problematic.
Summary: Great unit for the price, find the web interface slow compared to other routers and on the latest firmware still find issues with the 3G connection. After a few days the 3G drops and the router wont reconnect, even when I have keep connection alive. A power cycles restores the 3G connection, but shouldn’t have to be like this.
