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.
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.
