Billion BiPAC 7800N Review

  • 4.0 / 5
    • The good:
      High throughput, IPv6-compliant, budget-friendly
    • The bad:
      Doesn’t transmit on 5Ghz band, unreliable signal strength, confusing UI
    Economy and simplicity have always been the hallmarks of Billion routers, and the BiPAC 7800N ADSL2+ router is no exception. It has a high value for money and enough features to fulfill the needs of average home users. Billion sets its network peripherals apart from other modern-day routers well enough. But this device is odd even as an ADSL2+ router. It has an Ethernet WAN port, perhaps for people who prefer to use the modems provided by their ISP. Unfortunately, the router doesn’t allow this port to be used simultaneously with the ADSL2+. It would’ve been able to separate the conventional high-traffic web usage from the more sensitive applications such as online gaming. Also included in its outer features is a full set of Gigabit Ethernet ports for reliable and speedy wired connection, status LED lights, external antennae, a reset button and a WPS button. The user interface is a bit different from the 7700N, but is equally confusing for novices and for those who have known Cisco Connect or Netgear’s Genie App. The “Quick Install” method offers little to change this as it doesn’t explain what each configuration will do, nor does it offer a way to go back a step to edit a previous setting. Instead, the process abruptly terminates and goes back to square one. It’s not an all-in-one router, but it has enough features to cover the most basic functions such as built-in firewall, dynamic DNS, DHCP server, QoS, port forwarding and UPnP. Parents who want to put boundaries to their children’s web activity can filter URLs and even set wireless access schedules for the day. A user can also adjust its transmission strength for optimal performance and set up VLAN. The 7800N is IPv6-compliant and supports dual stacking which gives the freedom to choose between IPv4 and IPv6. Tech-savvy people will be delighted to find out that the UI offers a comprehensive way to configure this under the IPv6 Autoconfig page in the Advanced menu. Users may have some qualms about the router’s performance. It only transmits on the crowded 2.4GHz band which causes it to drop connection occasionally, specially if other devices using the same bandwidth are close by. Its coverage is also not that impressive, managing only a 15-20 meter optimal range. But under ideal conditions, the 7800N performs rather well with consistency. It has one of the highest average wireless throughput among contenders with similar features, like the Cisco Linksys X2000 and Netgear DGDN3700. The ADSL performance also keeps up with the wireless, with Annex M boosting upload rate in exchange for a little download speed. While it still has plenty of room for improvements, its consistent and impressive throughput makes it a cost-efficient router specially for those who want to set up a network with a core ADSL2+ core.
