Sky Fibre - Billion or Draytek?


[link to this post]
 
I've spent hours reading around on here, the SkyUser forums and other tech places and read up about the firmware that has been uploaded to accomodate Sky Fibre, etc. But I need a more specific opionion

Does anyone have any experience using one or both of these routers (7800N vs a comparably-priced Draytek) with Sky Fibre?

Currently using the Sagem one (pre-SR101) and every few days it will drop some things off the internal network, but not others. E.g. it'll kick my raspmbc media server off but not my laptop. It's odd. Also had very occasional problems with DHCP (though this may be the same issue, to be honest). Doesn't do it a lot, but it's annoying and I fancy upgrading it anyway.

What I need:

- something that can do N and G wireless at the same time
- something which can do lots of devices at once (1 desktop, 1 laptop, smart tv, xbox 360, raspbmc, sky, etc)
- something which works well with my Synology DS412+ NAS
- something which has good speed internal network transfers to the NAS

Any ideas? I don't mind paying good money for something which will perform well. Just don't want it to be a waste.

Thanks!

Not a lot of people are doing this. I gave up looking for a router that worked.

Draytek 2860 due out in the spring is supposed to be coming out suitable for MER authentification.
