Looking for a new Router


[link to this post]
 
Hi
I am on O2 ADSL2+

My Dlink 2640B has died on me today, I am looking for replacement with QOS as I would need to configure it to give top priority to my VOIP device.
I would also require excellent Wifi capabilities + Mac filtering for Wifi (I'm a little paranoid).
I'm thinking maybe Billion BiPAC 7800N - it seems to have what I'm after, though perhaps its a bit over the top.

Hope you can advise.
Thanks

You can get refurb 2640B's on ebay with a warranty for £20 delivered. Great piece of kit. I've still got three, did have 4 but sold one to a mate who needed a decent router - well, you gotta have a spare wink

Just a thought, it's not just the power supply that's died is it ?? I've had a couple where I thought it was the router, but it was just the PSU that had gone. These are also available on ebay from around £8. But, get a refurb for £20 and it comes with the psu anyway, and there's a spare router if yours is ok smile

Thanks for the reply. I couldn't wait any longer & bought a Billion 7800n.
No its not the PSU, I've had one die on me recently too so that was the first thing I checked when my problems started.

Can you give a update as to how this works on your line. I assume you will update the firmware to the latest release once you get it.

I am very happy with it. I haven't been able to sort out QOS for my Vonage line but it hasn't really been an issue. It came with the latest firmware.
