Work great, until yu run out of warranty

W. Magee, Amazon
19 June 2014
  • 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. Like many others I had no problem with the router until I turned it off for a few days while moving home. It was working fine and then turning it back on revealed the wireless function was dead.

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

Mr. R. W. M. Jones, Amazon
13 November 2013
  • 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.

BT line ADSL dropouts

m smith, Amazon
13 November 2013
  • 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!

RichB, Amazon
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.

Not built to last

Chippy2, Amazon
17 October 2013
  • 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.

Solid Workhorse

fwdlink, Amazon
13 August 2013
  • 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.

Rock steady ADSL with tunable SNR

Simon Smith "Si", Amazon
7 August 2013
  • 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.

OK, But Not Great

Matthew Goddard "mattgod", Amazon
29 July 2013
  • 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.

Terrible Wireless performance

RRCR, UK, Amazon
29 July 2013
  • 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.
