Billion BiPAC 8900-AX2400

 Just arrived and setup my new  Billion BiPAC 8900AX2400. 

 

For anyone considering this router, it set up quickly and easily with no undue fuss. One caveat is that the menu system is very complicated for anyone new to networking - but the sync and wifi signal is excellent.

Highly recommended for experienced users on PN vdsl.

Great bit of kit, the sort of thing appreciated by engineers rather than gamers (nothing against gamers!Smiley)

The only disappointment for me is the UK model doesn't support OpenVPN.

That's a shame, I like the sound of it apart from that. Can't do without OpenVPN though. Will have to stick with my RT-N66U and HG612 for now.

Just had some good news on Billion support forum (which by the way is excellent) OpenVPN support to be added "hopefully we will have a firmware update near the end of March" they say. Nord VPN support added today.

That's good news Smiley

 

One other essential feature for me is Wake on LAN/WAN. My Asus has an iOS app which allows me to wake my PC from anywhere, which is pretty handy. Do you know if the Billion supports WOL/WOW ?

 

cheers
