Re: List of Routers to replace Home Hub 3.

Yup it comes in 3 flavours depending on what wireless features you want.

 

I have the 2750n and it has been fantastic in the first month,

 

So far it has stayed up for over 2 weeks in one go and then that was spoilt by me restarting it when the exchange in Birmingham went funny.

I have been using TP-LINK WR841N works fine been running 3 days solid might not sound long but compared to the BT one which either slowed down or i had to reboot every day.

Re: List of Routers to replace Home Hub 3.

Billion 7402NX certainly works, used this previously with ADSL2+ but can be switched to EWAN instead of ADSL mode and has the added benefit of 3G dongle USB connection for auto-fallover.

The combined units with built-in VDSL modem would be better still IMO but are very expensive.

Re: List of Routers to replace Home Hub 3. NETGEAR ProSafe SRXN3205 works

I'm using a NETGEAR ProSafe SRXN3205 as a replacement for the Home Hub 3.

 

From a factory reset state, the router's administration interface is on http://192.168.1.1 and the minimum configuration is to set the "ISP Login" using "bthomehub@btbroadband.com" for the Login/username and anything/something (not blank) for the Password. After a short period of time (maybe 10-30 seconds), the Monitoring page will show that the connection has been established.

Re: List of Routers to replace Home Hub 3.

i have just been on the phone to BT and mentioned this thread - his exact word were ' if people are foolish enough not to use the homehubs provided , then they will of course be getting slow connections ' <<<< way to big up your own faulty gear BT lol
