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...
Summary: Some reviewers say that these routers are unpretentious but dependable, offering a variety of configuration options and rock-solid connections. Others say that the wireless cards eventually burn out. My experience is that they are both correct.
Summary: Got this a couple of years ago, and make no mistake its a brilliant router. However, it a brilliant router with a time bomb waiting to go off, and that bomb usually goes off outside the 2 year warranty.
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...
Summary: I bought this router just over two years ago. It worked flawlessly until a few weeks ago when the wireless suddenly stopped working. A quick Google search established that this is a pretty common problem with no fix. If you're thinking of buying one, Google "BiPAC 7800N wireless problem".
Summary: Disappointed with this. I had one for nearly 12 months and the WIFI started to drop out. I got that exchanged, so no complaints on that front. However, after around 12 months the 2nd one is playing up, this time it’s picking on one of my devices at random and refusing it access.
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.
Summary: I bought this router based on the number of high reviews and to be honest I had high hopes for this unit which was bought to replace an ageing (but still working) Linksys. The router was setup okay although there were initial frustrations in getting the unit to recognise the broadband on the line.
Summary: I bought this router thinking it would be far superior to the standard BT Homehub, with a price tag over £100 you would expect it to outperform in every way - not the case. Don't get me wrong, there are many features on this router and the ability to change the DNS servers was a welcome one over the...
