8800DXL replacement

Post by greshoff » Wed Mar 11, 2020 7:27 am

My 8800DXL which has served me very well over the years needs to be replaced. I am unfamiliar with the current range of Billion routers. What would be a good replacement for the 8800DXL? Many thanks

Can you confirm the model number again as we don't have a 8800DXL model within our range

Thanks but unfortunately both of these are out of my budget. I suppose my maximum budget is £150

Thanks, Is the Bipac 8800AXL R2 a better router than my current 7800DXL? Is it comparable in terms of features?
