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.
Summary: ADSL modems! I have tried a few from TP link to LinkSys and even a texas chipped modem running custom firmware. Finally as the last one died I looked for something perhaps a little more robust. On the recommendations across various review sites I thought I would give this one a spin.
Summary: I had couple of other modems which worked so and so. First can was OK with somewhat troubled line but the speed was not on a level I wanted. Second had better speed but dropped out too quite often and was not able get back without power off reboot. This one works with the troubled line as well as the first one or even better and with the higher speed than either of the previous ones. Very nice product.
