Re: Billion 7800N is the new "Thomson ST586v6"...LEGENDARY


[re: baby_frogmella] [link to this post]
 
The only people I know of who've got the IPv6 firmware are ISPs but Billion support did say (when I asked them about this in Nov) that it would be generally available sometime early this year.

Pity Billion have no plans to release the lower spec 7800NL to the general public in this country, which has IPv6 support out of the box.

OK, but I would quite like a private VPN. so I need a VPN server.

Are you saying the Thomson ST586v6 gives you that?

No, but as the 7800N is expensive it is the kind of feature that it might include, though I don't know how easy it is to access VPNs from public Wifi networks or mobile phones networks.

I'm surprised that at that price is doesn't act as a VPN terminator for even a limited number of connections. Accessing a home setup via VPN and a public WiFi is generally straighforward using a PSK, although if you set it up using certificates it's a bit more complicated. The connection does depend on the quality of the WiFi - many of them are abysmally slow.

... Its also a cable/FTTC router so future proof.
Thanks for the interesting post - I'm a Broadcom (585v6) fan! Re. Future proof - is it 'IPv6 Ready' logo'd ?


Billion are about to launch a new version of the 7800N in the "7800NL" that is IPv6 ready though I guess the new firmware should offer most if not all of the new features??

I've been using the Billion El Cheapo 5200 for a couple of years and have to say it's pretty stable on my poor line and I really like their stuff. The flaky wireless I have on my current Buffalo access point is driving me nuts so I doubt it will be long before I also get the 7800N myself.

Is there anyone that has started using a Billion 7800N having previously used a BT 2700HGV? Did it manage a sync as good as the 2700HGV did?

I'm interested in getting this router as I find the web interface on the 2700HGV to be a bit of a pain to manage, but it maintains excellent sync compared to other routers I've tried (in excess of an extra 1 mbit).

IDNet Home Max 4.0Mbps
BT 2700HGV v6
