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 had to replace my trusty old Netgear DG834g. It was hooked up to a BT type ADSL line and had started dropping the connection multiple times a day. I nearly tore my hair out trying to find one unit that would support ADSL, Wireless and Gigabit Ethernet. I wasn't impressed by the reviews of any of the newer Netgear or Linksys routers and TP-Link were incompatible with my line.
Summary: Recommended and purchased this router on behalf of a friend, poor performance was being experienced with the router that the ISP provided. Now using this Router the ADSL2 speed has increased by 1.5mb, Also with the previous router the wireless signal was hard to get in the upstairs rooms, there is no problem with this Router anywhere in the house, very good signal even outside 30 metres away at the end of the garden.
Summary: SUMMARY: I have owned this for less than a day. It was expensive, even with some money off. But I'm really impressed (and that's not easy). With patchy wireless signal in some areas of the house (from a BT-Homehub), I was looking at buying Powerline Ethernet adapters, or a wireless booster.
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: Purchased this unit after reading the reviews here and other on-line forums as I have a connection which is far from the exchange and with the DSL provider equipment it's highly unreliable, even though I live in an urban area with fiber everywhere around us, except our neighborhood. The unit has allowed me to tweak the SNR and have obtained excellent results in speed increase, nearly 1Meg increase in download, upload is already maxed for my line type.
