Currently on a Home Hub 5 and am starting to notice issues such as dropped connections when uploading and some complaints of issues around the house from housemates with general wireless conection quality. I'm considering getting a more advanced, faster, and above all RELIABLE router! It will need to be fairly robust as it will need to be managing a lot of connections, both wired and wireless.
Can anyone suggest some makes and models, perhaps ones that are known to work on BT Infinity without any major set-up headaches?
Thanks in advance!
Solved! Go to Solution.
unless you already use a separate modem with your HH5 your will need a vdsl modem/router not just a router for your fibre connection many use the cheap £30ish tplink 9970 but only single band or you speed more and get dual band
Thanks for the feedback.
I don't have a serparate modem, no.
I'm happy to pay a fair bit more than £30, possibly around £100. Maybe more if the hardware was good enough. I'm a fairly high-end PC user, plus I have a PS4, iPad, laptop, NAS drive, Smart TV, Philips Hue lights... lots of things that I'm constantly hammering the connection with. Plus I have two housemates who are also frequently watching Netflix on their own devices.... So like I say, I'm after something that will deliver high performance!
I have a TP-Link VR600 v2 and am very happy with it. List price is slightly over £100 but you can currently pick one up online for £80. You might want to have a look at that.
I ended up thinking it was worth shelling out some big bucks as it's something I will use heavily every day for years to come and went for the Asus DSL-AC88U. So far, so good. All hooked up and running within about 15 minutes and it's not failed yet....
