First thoughts for a product that cost £220 notes ...Cheap feel and cheap look and far prefer Netgears based on what I'm touching.
Anyway to cut a long story short and having spent the best part of 90 minutes with Billion tech support ,neither him or me could get this to connect to the internet, constant red internet light regardless of what we did and what setting/passwords/ect was changed.
Found the Billion Interface horrible and not user friendly,slow and sluggish in changing pages which sort of just hangs for a minute if you know what i mean, save changes and you are just starring at the same page you changed with no indication its doing what you asked.
Anyway its boxed ,going back to Amazon as im totally frustrated with what should be a simple procedure and a few minutes of set up, not convinced its faulty it just seemed not to find the IP Address and i do hope this is not EE blocking it.
And just yo add insult to injury when chatting to the Billion guy about Type 3 Nat and setting up a VPN,told him i was achieving download speeds of around 90/100 with this 4g Connection for him to tell me he had tested the 4500nz and i would be lucky to achieve 10 download when using a vpn on this device after routing traffic.
So that put another dampener on it, anyway now in the market for another product [Not billion ] Really was not in processed with the quality of this for the money, seemed very cheap and nasty, i know generally most routers are just plastic but the weight and the feel of this did not scream out to me this is worth £220.
Complete pain from start to finish, convinced it still some setting that nether myself or the tech guy at Billion had figured, at one point i had to disconnect the 4500 and reconnect the 4g router to see if that would connect because he thought the sims pin was blocked [not the case].he even sent me his settings for his router and a ee4g connection and that did not work either.
I know i keep saying this and repeating myself but that has to be the worse router and interface i have ever come across, i have always had Netgears and i know they are not perfect ,but compared to Billion routers in my opinion in looks and feel and interface and ease of use they are far superior.
So anyone with any other options would be cool, would be nice if there was one that used the EE external Ariel i had fitted for starters' [twin feed] new this one did not but i have read there are others that do.
Oh and this is not having a go at you guys that recommended certain routers, if this had worked and i was not so frustrated i doubt i would be dishing the dirt on it.
Daft question but I'm asking, if this type 3 Nat is solved by a VPN then is it not possible to set this up on the EE4G router without buying a 3rd party router.
