Good evening all,
I have 900 full fibre to the property, package etc and having run speed tests etc only get around 300mpbs on wifi having googled looks like the BT smart hub cant do more than that.
As i am paying for 900 i would like that, having logged into BT and done speed tests there on the line i am getting 920mpbs.
can anyone recommend a router to replace the BT one that will give me what I want please.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Practically any router will do. It does not need to incorporate any modem as that is done by the ONT. A pure router only will do. A Netgear Nighthawk is well thought of.
Ooh the Nighthawk looks good reading up on it. Thank you.
A silly question would I plug that into the BT hub or disconnect the BT hub and use it as a direct replacement.
Remembering if you go digital voice you will have to switch back to the SH2
I won't be getting digital voice so will go and splash out on a nighthawk.
Thanks so much.
Just bought a Netgear Nighthawk AX1800 from Argos just got wifi speeds on my ipad air 2019 of 555mpbs on wifi so a lot better.
my laptop and samsung phone havent really changed still around 300mpbs but i assume thats just what my devices can handle.
I just changed to an ASUS RT-AC68U the performance is amazing, no WiFi issues, 5G and 2.4 are split, apple devices now working faultlessly . I feel like complaining to BT but prob wasting my time,
My sky q box still downloads painfully slow so just ordered a long ethernet cable to hardwire it rather than on WiFi.
