Currently have (still have) ADSL 😞 only get max 8~Mb DL and ~0.9 Mb DL want to replace BT router HH4 previous post earlier today suggested TPLink 9970 it only offers 2.4 got me wondering what are my options for replacing my HH4 today whilst future proofing myself for foreseeable ?
Solved! Go to Solution.
TP-Link AC1200 Wireless Dual Band VDSL/ADSL about £67 is very good unless you expect to get G.Fast.
It can be locked to stay on one connection profile, eg ADSL. which means if you do get a line error, it recovers very quickly.
It has lots of extra features.
At £67 if need to replace not too exp if needs to be.
What about 802.1 ac and mimo ? Guessing I get what I pay for if want to get that would need to pay more.
Have NAS and Plex and want to stream to all TVs via PassThrough plugs / Amazon Firestick and mobile devices. ?
My ignorance with previous I’m guessing ‘ac’ version means supporting newer ‘ac’ wireless right ?
If you're prepared to spend a bit more money then I can strongly recommend the Asus DSL-AC68U at about £150. I've been using one for quite a few years now with 3 NAS devices , 2 CCTV systems, several printers, laptops, iPads,iPhones & PCs connected and it handles everything quite happily.
The one downside is that it won't handle G.Fast fibre connections if that's ever available to you.
I think if we ever got any type of fibre it’s most likely to be that far away it’ll be FTTP that’s how far away I believe we are to getting anything Fibre.
Thanks for earlier suggestion I followed this up and went to to-link and ran through the their analysis tool- it suggested -
Wondered a friend also suggested if I can tweak SNR might also improve my broadband speed (but then that's perhaps a seperate discussion)
Are all the routers listed here capable of supporting BT TV?
