Great when it's working, not so great when it's not

Summary: I've been using this router for around 3 months. The good parts: It achieves 25% higher sync speed and is far and away more stable than my old Netgear modem. It also has lots of great features including IPv6 support. Unfortunately it failed completely after two months. The DSL side simply stopped working, no sync at all. Rebooting multiple times and resetting to factory config did not help.
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: 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: 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 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 HomeHub but the wireless performance was just terrible.
Summary: It is an expensive device comparing to other products on the market.I had it for 2 years. Now the wireless broke down, just after the warranty passed. I was going for a trip for a few days, so I turned the device off. After returning and starting it the wireless is no longer working. I searched Google for other users comments with similar problems and I found many similar cases.
