It's OK for connection speeds up to ADSL2+. Fibre? Not so much.

  • Summary: According to my order information, I've had this router since 6 December 2011 and I have generally been delighted with it. The wireless range is really what ensured it as a permanent fixture in our house because it surpassed every other router we tried (various Netgear routers, a Technicolor and a Draytek Vigor). It has a broadcom chipset which consistently syncs at the highest possible ADSL2+ speed with the exchange, and line dropping became a thing of the past.

"cautious optimism"

  • Summary: This has gone from a 5-star device to a 1-star - like so many others, the wireless failed just out of warranty. Up to then it gave good service, but 2 and a bit years isn't a "reasonable" lifespan for a premium product - if it cost less, I wouldn't have minded so much, but at £120 it's a bit steep to just throw in the bin. Billion offered me a refurb for £40 but wouldn't fix it for free, so I'd prefer to put the money against something else that I can trust..

Very poor Wi-Fi coverage.

  • Summary: Billion BiPAC 7800N Dual WAN ADSL2+/Broadband Wireless-N Gigabit Firewall Modem Router I originally bought this router to replace an old Netgear DG834G V5. After the easy setup, so I thought, wi-fi coverage was very poor. Perhaps my house is too big? I read through several reviews about this product, and when I came to a review by 'Zultan' I wondered was the "Ralink MINI pci card" ever installed properly at manufacture.

Good router but throughput can be slower than max.

T. Leonard "Banger", Amazon

  • Summary: Have given this router 3 stars as everything works fine except throughput can slow down randomly from good known reliable servers. Problem seems to be when doing a 100-200mb download the stream will stall a couple of times for 1-2 seconds, thus affecting download speeds. My speedtouch doesn't do this. Billion Engineers are looking at this problem, hope they fix it. Unfortunately I have found another problem, after 9 days the router reboots.
