I'm interesting in getting a Billion BiPAC 7300N Draft 802.11n ADSL2+ / Broadband Router. It has WiFi, modem and router, etc. All good. However it doesn't have VoIP.

Does anyone have any suggestions for a good all-in-one broadband router, with 802.11n and VoIP?

There's plenty of standalone VoIP gates on the market. They are really handy in a sense that they could work over any connection as long as you can provide ethernet to them. You won't be tied up if you find cheap 3G or cable provider.

i've already got a sipura 3000 standa alone voip ... but i'm after an all in one device. –  Pure.Krome Jul 30 '09 at 6:02

I'd really consider getting separate devices to handle the three different tasks. It costs a bit more now, but will save you money in the long run. With an all in one unit, upgrading one piece forces you to upgrade everything. I have a generic docsis 2.0 modem, a linksys 610n router (really nice dual radio that supports dd-wrt) and a generic linksys voip box. When I want to upgrade to a docsis 3.0 modem, I don't have to pay for a new router/voip box. (not to mention having to re-configure my router). In the end, being able to upgrade individual pieces rather than re-buy the whole thing is a plus (yet I'm still a Mac user, go figure)

I myself have never bought a draytek router, but I hear that they make the best routers(little pricey, but very very good). Let's say for example

Draytek Vigor 2200VG breedband router VoIP Wireless + 8x VPN

On this dutch site they say this router has been tested as the best of a batch routers. If I would buy a router again I for sure would buy a draytek router because they are very good. I right now have tried a lot of routers like syscom/sweex routers which are very cheap but aren't stable.

I just found this beauty:

BoB:

enter image description here

  • Allows you to connect to ADSL, ADSL2 or ADSL2+ connections
  • 802.11n Wireless connectivity
  • Supports USB Fat16/32 and NTFS storage drives
  • Allows for 2 VoIP accounts
  • Built-in 10/100 switch

Not sure if this thing will be available to other Internet providers except iiNet, but man, it just sounds so great!

Why not go all out and get the DLink DGL-4500? I have the DGL-4300 and it's worked flawlessly for 3 years!

And how does the 4500 compare to a 655, besides the fancy pancy LCD screen? –  Pure.Krome Jul 30 '09 at 6:09
    
It not only has the OLED screen on top to tell you what's going on with the router with a glance. It also has GameFuel, which allows you to do a QoS (Quality of Service) not only on VOIP, but multiple game profiles. The QoS specifies bandwidth for application traffic, ensuring that those programs get the bandwidth needed to run without issue. i.e.: You're downloading movies from 3 computers and you get a call on your VOIP. GameFuel QoS will make sure that VOIP has enough bandwidth to not be choppy or cut out the call. –  JFV Jul 30 '09 at 12:31
    
yeah. that's just normal QoS stuff. –  Pure.Krome Jul 31 '09 at 8:57
