Looking for Modem Router

Living at home with 4 people who constantly want WiFi from the BT home hub 5 is a nightmare. I am not savvy when it comes to routers and such but i know that the hh is not the best.

I dont think i have a Modem (ONT) box on the wall as only 2 wires come out of it, one for the phone and the other for the hub. 

Any help is appreciated and suggestions for faster internet speeds are also welcome

It would help if we knew what your budget was for this.

A TP-Link AC2800 Wireless MU-MIMO VDSL/ADSL Modem Router would set you back about £170 but cheaper ones are available.

Its a bit like asking if anyone can recommend a car, do you want a Ferrari or a Trabant.

Re: Looking for Modem Router

Four people wanting to use wifi doesn’t sound like a very big load to me unless all four indulge in simultaneous intensive gaming. If so, then a suitable router is likely to be expensive. HH5 is certainly not the best of routers but it is not the worst either. Before what might be an expensive outlay, I would recommend doing some checks to make sure that your HH5 is indeed the culprit. As a first step, a BT speedtest ( will tell you what speed your broadband is to the router us and perhaps help you to identify any problems.
