Currently have a Billion ADSL+2 Router/modem 7404 series - must be 6 years old.
Anyway it has served me well, firmware updated - but I think it's holding my internet speed back. Does anyone have any tweaks or inside information for these routers?
I'm also considering a new router, happy to stay with Billion but would like to know any comments on Billion or other recommendations etc anyone may have?
Cheers in advance.Remember - it saves you forgetting.

The Apple Airport Extreme base station is a very good router and comes with dual bands. It sells for $179 here in the US direct from Apple. It's best to buy a router that is compatible with whatever system your ISP is using so keep that in mind when you shop around.
