Summary: I bought this to replace a Linksys WAG120N that never quite hit the mark (poor signal quality/range and connection drops at both ends); when a new mobile device wouldn't connect properly two floors away it was time for a change. This was the best reviewed ADSL router I could find and I was willing to pay the price.
Summary: Lives up to the reviews as a very stable and configurable modem/router. Great quality adsl modem with lots of tweaking options available if you like to play. User interface isnt great. Ive been a draytek user for many years and find the billion interface poor in comparison. However, I wouldnt let that put you off.
Summary: After having some trouble with the Asus DSL-N55U I had it replaced with one of these. Though it does not have the USB features (plenty of other hardware can be added for this later) It makes up for that by giving you the best internet speed. Out of the box the Billion gave me 1.5mps more downstream than I've seen here before. Pings are also slightly lower. The option to enable broadcom's PhyR and SRA improves things further.
Summary: After being with BT for years and having no other choice because of the rural place I live, I had pretty much given up on getting any normal speed that was of use to man or beast. Then a couple of day ago my router packed up and I started to see the reviews on this router and thought what the hell and took the plunge, can always send it back if it was rubbish. Well all I can tell you is that this router is Awesome.

Summary: I purchased the Billion BiPAC 7800N after discovering that the Infineon chipset in my existing modem/router was the cause of the low ADSL connection speed on my Be line. The BiPAC 7800N is easy to set-up, and has many great features, such as: • Excellent Wi-FI signal range and speed • Support for Annex M • A detailed system log • A basic but useful DNS server, which negates the requirement of synchronising "hosts" files between devices • A dynamic DNS service client...
Great when it's working, not so great when it's not

Summary: I've been using this router for around 3 months. The good parts: It achieves 25% higher sync speed and is far and away more stable than my old Netgear modem. It also has lots of great features including IPv6 support. Unfortunately it failed completely after two months. The DSL side simply stopped working, no sync at all. Rebooting multiple times and resetting to factory config did not help.
Summary: Trying to cure my ADSL line dropouts. Billion works very well and hangs on to signal tenaciously. However BT manage to swamp the signal with line disconnect when 'phone rings. Best router I've had so far and I've tried a few. Good interface with lots of customisation options. Can recommend although it's a bit pricey.
A serious router that puts all ISP routers to shame!

Summary: I was with talk talk when I purchased this router. The router supplied by talk talk was more useless that talk talk themselves - most of you who have ever been with them will know what I am talking about. The ones who don't... well just stay away from them unless you are prepared to cope with a rubbish service with rubbish support and rubbish equipment.
Summary: Excellent performance but, as with many other reviewers here and elsewhere, the wireless card has failed after two years. I thought the high price would buy me a better quality product, but that has not been the case.
