Billion revamps top-selling modem/router

Billion has added to its range of 'fibre ready' ADSL routers (ie, they incorporate an Ethernet WAN port as well as an ADSL2+ modem) with the release of the BiPAC 7800NXL.

Features of the Billion BiPAC 7800NXL include four Gigabit Ethernet ports (three for LAN connections plus one for LAN or WAN use), 802.11n Wi-Fi, and a USB port.

That USB port can be used to attach a 3G/4G wireless broadband dongle, a printer, or to turn a storage device into a NAS complete with DLNA and FTP support.

"The 7800NXL delivers a future-proof solution from ADSL2+ services to Fibre-to-the-Home deployments," said Raaj Menon, CEO of distributor PCRange.

"This model is a direct replacement of the 7800N, which has been Billion's bestseller in Australia, so I expect the 7800NXL to top our sales table."

The $199 7800NXL should ship by the end of the month.
