A serious router that puts all ISP routers to shame!
28 October 2013
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: I did a huge research what modem i should by. I am far from the ADSL exchange and provider's modem did not work very well. With his unit i had download/upload speed increase on the line and the sync speed is much quicker too.
Summary: FYI I brought this Router/modem last August (2012).In the last 10 + years I have previously owned a Netgear DG843G (who hasn't?) A d-link (freebie from my ISP) A Thompson something (also a freebie from my ISP) and a Belkin N-Vision (the one with the lcd screen on the front of it) the latter being the most recent. I think it's fair to say I know my routers...
Summary: Having struggled with cheaper routers for years I took the plunge and lashed out on a more expensive one. What a difference it makes. My new laptop really struggled to connect with the old router but now it's great. The smart TV is wifi connected and the speed is much better. I couldn't get a signal at all in some parts of the house and now I can! Easy to set up. NASA have asked if they can log on too!!
Summary: I bought this to replace my trusty Netgear that just kept losing contact. Changing to Billion was a gamble and a bit worrying for a non-techy person but I read the reviews and jumped. Best decision I could have made. It works brilliantly with my iMac, and supports my laptop, iPad, iPhone, Time Machine and the grandchildren's iPads when they visit. Not a blip!
Summary: All the 5 star reviews are spot on.... I live 5 miles from the exchange (no hope of cable rolling out into the Devon countryside) and previously had a 3 year old netgear router which struggled to get much over 1mbps I now get 2.6mbps no fancy tweeking, just plug in and off you go.... Don't just think about it BUY IT!!!
Summary: Excellent router that can be attached to a telephone (ADSL) and or Cable. The Wifi handles all the standards and has excellent connectivity. It is equipped with a state full firewall and loads of other features (DHCP, service filters etc) more than you could ever need.
Great Modem with amazing connection speed and features!!

Summary: The Billion 7800N is the only modem I know of that will actually increase your download/connection speed, and usually by a considerable amount. Using several other modems I got around 8-9Mb a second download. Using the 7800N I get 16.5Mb download with a latency of 10 milliseconds, (great for gaming) The 7800N also has a secret feature, yes its a secret...
Summary: I suffer from living a long way from the exchange, with a line that BT initally stated could not support broadband at all (not surprising with an off the scale attenuation of 63.5dB +). Improved routers over the years have increased my sync speeds to the dizzy heights of around 1200 - 1400 kbps (no, I have not missed a zero), most recently with a Netgear DGN2200.
