I’ve now set up my new Billion BiPac 7800N router, and it’s sitting there merrily sending packets to and fro. Only snag is that the port-forwarding doesn’t work properly – all packets appear to originate from the 7800N’s internal IP address, rather than the actual origin. I’ve logged a support call with Billion UK so we’ll see what they say.
Had a response from Billion support today, with a link to a pre-release version of the firmware (1.02e.RC1) which fixes the IP translation issue (and has a few other features to boot) – so far, I’m pretty impressed with the company. Assuming it’s all pretty stable now, I’ll put up a more thorough review in a week or so. Comments Off on Firmware fix!
