Hi all I'm sure I'm not the only one but having recently changed broadband providers moving to plusnet from sky. It's been painful to say the least plusnet router is supposed to be smart wifi dual band what ever they advertise but it's absolutely terrible my 4 year old sky router worked better. Can someone reccomend an alternative router there's so many different types and some are in the hundreds bit much for me but if someone can reccomend a good budget one that does the job be much appreciated . Thanks

I swear by Airport Extreme never failed me and I use 3 around the house for a rock solid signal.. great thing is if your happy with 5GHZ Wireless N then you can get a 4th gen model off CEX for under £30.00 and 2 year warranty..

If you want AC CEX Again have them for £100.00

A decent tp link one will do the trick for about £20

The plusnet hub one, if that is what you have is exactly the same hardware as the BT hub 5A that I'm using on sky because it is way better, especially the wifi than any of my sky routers, and I have at least 4 different sky models.

Yep... Asus Asus Asus...

DSL-AC68U is probably out of your price range, but it's a great bit of kit and worth every penny imo.

The sky sr101 and sr102 routers broadcast the login credentials over the lan in a dhcp packet when they try to connect, so you can capture them with a packet sniffer eg wireshark.

There's a website to obtain passwords for most of the earlier sky routers.

Alternatively with sky adsl you can just use the standard o2 login

option username [email protected]'
option password 'password' (<<the value of password probably doesn't matter)

(I'm using openwrt on my bt hub 5a so it works with any isp)
