I currently have a superhub 2, but getting a hub 3 next week, this may well partly solve my issue, but id rather get some advice anyway.
I have my hub downstairs underneath my shelves inside my mains cupboard, I have a few rj45 cables going up to each shelf, and also 1 running under floor to next room which has my pc, these cannot be rewired without lifting solid flooring and raggling walls. So router cannot move.
Upstairs in my bedroom, my xbox gets 2 bars of signal on 5g network, works fine for gaming, but for downloading new games etc, my speeds are around 20 megabits/sec, 10% of my 200MB/s speeds,
The kids bedrooms sometimes struggle to connect full stop.
I have tried different channels etc, I reboot everything at least once a week, sometimes more.
I have tried a couple wifi extenders, whilst they do extend the signal, they do nothing for the speed whatsoever.
My main question really is will a new more expensive router offer better speeds/signal strength?
Ideally looking for opinions from people from similar scenarios to my own.
I have seen a few of these new fancy £100-300 routers, with all the high numbered jargon, but how much of that translates to real world use?
Few of the ones that appear on most google searches
Are they just gimmicks or will they really benefit me?
Sorry for long winded post
