Billion BiPAC 8900AX R2 - Setup Guide

Thought I might post this to help people with this router or those who are considering buying it.

Setup - Configuration > WAN:

802.1P: 0
802.1Q: 101
Username that was originally setup: ('''@plusdsl.net)

Authentication method: CHAP

Is it better than the Hub One:

Hub One

As you can see both sync at the same speed, but I can't see all the stats on the Hub One.

Wired speed test on the Billion

If it help anyone, the following link shows how to configure multicast TV (Youview box) on a Billion 8800AXL.
The set up looks very similar to the 8900AX.

Re: Billion BiPAC 8900AX R2 - Setup Guide

Thanks! Have just bought a Billion 8800AXL R2 (a newer revision of the 8800AXL) and @npr instructions (in the link) worked perfectly for setting up multicast on the new modem/router (so Plusnet's channels now work on my YouView+ box).

 

Thanks again to both of you.
