Billion 7800N

Just ordered one of these, I couldn't resist Smiley
How is it for stability? My connection tends to drop at night due to the SNR and I was wondering if this would solve the problem.
Also, what do people on here think about it in general?
Thanks,
Smiley.

Re: Billion 7800N

With it's current firmware 1.06e and an artificiality induced SNRM of 5db  my 7800N is rock steady at 8128kbs.
Generally I am happy with it for broadband and Wi-Fi.

What is your attentuation and what do you sync at without the SNR tweaked?

Re: Billion 7800N

If I let the SNRM float to 6db then Downstream drops to about 8000kbs. I have had 8128kbs at 6db but had an occasional overnight resync which dropped it back to the high 7000's.
Curiously I have had no overnight resyncs with the Margin pulled down to 5db Undecided

Thanks Strat, how are the errors in relation to the uptime?

Re: Billion 7800N

A recent line fault dropped my SNRM down to 1.6dB and mine held the signal without a flinch and a sync of over 12Mbps. It's getting a reputation of being one of the best around. If you want a full set of line stats Routerstats now works with it as well.
@Strat...
Download the latest Routerstats..   earlier versions don't work.
For the router search text use this URL for the stats page   ...  http://192.168.1.254/status/adslstatus.html
Tick "Use source A", get the page and mark the stats that you want
Telnet:
login set to admin and password
Change telnet prompt to ">"
Change chipset command set to adsl info --stats, tick alternative data format.

That is very encouraging. I hope I get the same results on ADSL1! How close are you to the exchange and what are your full stats?

Re: Billion 7800N

I presume you've marked the noise parameters in the Get Page dialog?
