Anyone got this working with Vodafone Broadband?

Unless Vodafone does not give you a modem ( this is not a modem) just plug this into your router/modem and it will work just fine, I have one plugged into my Virgin router/modem via a long Ethernet cable upstairs I can get wi-fi all over house.

Yes sorry I should have mentioned, this is not a modem.

You will need to put your ISP router into Modem only mode, connect it to this with an ethernet cable and then connect to this router over Wireless.

Plus, I will also be using this with Virgin :)

Saw this earlier

Been looking for a home hub replacement

Had originally shortlisted asus ac87u or asus ac3200 and have been looking for a good price or reason to by either

Then this pops up which I know is maybe a generation older but could it be worth a £60 a £80 saving

Any thoughts or experiences to share here? Not in a rush and also just want to get the right router for the right money (not just cheapest)

Typically any ISP provided router wont be very customisable and feature poor, this has much features and setting and can also be flashed with a different OS to be even more feature rich.

In terms of range this is much better as it has 3 aerials if you use it with Virgin you can have it as your main router and the Superhub as just a modem and utilise the netgears capabilities or you can just use it as a super powerful extender, or as I do, set it up as a completely different router upstairs feeding off the Superhubs Ethernet port. Still have the same IP addr but its own feed to the internet on a separate network, you can then use some interesting features on this which the Superhub doesn't have ie Dynamic dns updates to no-ip.com. But still have the Superhub as the main router feeding Wi-fi downstairs and ethernet to TV, Qbox etc. You can also tellnet to it and add your own features not included in the NetGEar OS stuff like adding WOL support.

Depends if you need all the other stuff, might be easier and cheaper just to buy a Netgear extender for 15 UKP if you want extra wi-fi coverage and not all the extra features:-)

If you stream amongst load of units using wi-fi or streaming on ethernet (TV, X-box) this will perform better than the virgin as well but again its depending if you want to spend 100 quid for it:-)

If you have a old PC hanging around you could do this : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ledv33t6SNE

here is a review from a verified purchase on Amazon about replacing a Virgin super hub 2 -

I wish I bit the bullet and got this router earlier! It has given me a strong wifif signal throughout my home, and speeds are significantly improved. I had previously been using repeaters, with limited success (apple products struggled to switch between the multiple access points.)

I have a virgin superhub 2 in a 5 bed house on 3 levels (including loft). With the superhub, the wifi signal would not reach one bedroom at all, and 2 other rooms were very patchy (wifi would be very slow or disconnect from mobile device.)

Setup was reasonably straightforward;
- I followed virgin's online instructions to switch the superhub into modem mode, then turned it off.
- Connected up the nighthawk router, left it turned off
- Turned on the superhub, then the router a couple of minutes later
- Used the netgear router webpage on my PC to complete the setup and rename the SSIDs
- All up and running in approx. 15 min

I tested speeds before and after for comparison purposes, hopefully this is useful if you're considering purchasing. These results are from the ookla speedtest app on a samsung S5 and iphone 6, connecting to the 5G network. Worth noting that on my ipad 2 (which does not have wireless AC), the speeds are not as greatly improved, although it still benefits from better coverage through the house.

- LIVING ROOM (where router is located): Before ~80MB/s, After 102MB/s
- BED 1 Iphone 6 (very bad coverage before): Before ~0.5-3MB/s and connection would drop, after 106MB/s!
- LOFT, before 35-40MB/s, after 86MB/s

If you have a suitable modem you can use on it on SKY fibre but looking on the internet it looks like quite a science project as SKY dont want you using anything other than there on router/modem.

I had Sky Fibre max for a while but went back to Virgin as BT internet service sucks big balls, Virgin is much more stable I need that for my work. And Virgin allow you to pass through their Router/modem which make life much easier if you want to play with other routers features.

I like it! its fast and has a great range, I guess the newer ones have 4 aerials and faster processors so depends if you need that for the extra money.

I read that the Asus routers are pretty good and have more settings and features out of the box than this one not sure about the newer NEtgear ones, but some of the Asus routers seem easier to set more unusual features without flashing telnet scripts to them, which is not hard just more fiddly than having the setting on the product as standard.

But this is a great price if you can live with not having the latest and greatest!

This will give much better speeds that your ISP router, have the flexibility to use the advanced settings and have much better WI-FI range.

If you wanted to do it on the router you would need to flash Tomato or DD-WRT onto it. I have not done that but there are shed loads of docs and videos doing it with this model. So I guess - Yes you can!

Fantastic router. It's one of the best supported with regards to firmware. I bought a 'very good' warehouse one for 90 quid 2 months ago, a new one was around 120 quid at the time so this seems a good deal.

The web interface is a bit slow but has all the features I need. Asus firmware is much better and there is an actively developed port of it called XWRT that works flawlessly on the R7000.

I've had one for around 2 years now, it replaced my piece of poop 'Super'hub2 which decided to drop connections whenever it felt like it and wanted a reboot every week.

Since I've had this, signal is vastly improved across my 4 bedroom period house (solid brick, chimney stacks etc) to the point there's no other AP's needed, unlike the Virgin POS.

I've left the default firmware in place as a key benefit for me is native support with the Netgear Arlo wireless camera's which I have dotted around my property - there's no need for the expensive base station if you have this router.

Recommended, I paid £130 2 years ago.

Don't suppose you now off the top of your head if the Tomato firmware enables client to client IPSEC vpn capability?

I have the Superhub 3 and this is so much better!

But you can use both, you don't need to turn the Superhub into modem mode, if you dont want to.

When you first connect it the Netgear Genie will tell you are connected to another router and ask you if you want to set it up as a client/extender, Say no and then it will connect it as if it has its own connection to the internet. You will not just be a client of the Superhub but will have a different network with DCHP local domains for clients connected to it. Like having a totally separate network running through the Superhub, which is still serving out its own Wifi and Ethernet.

But now you have all extra features you can use on this beast!

If your looking for reliable wifi equipment then its worth checking out Ubiquiti Networks APs - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Ubiquiti-Networks-2-4GHz-867Mbit-UAP-AC-LITE/dp/B016K4GQVG/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1479135091&sr=8-3&keywords=unifi - granted they are not for everyone as they are intended for Enterprise / Commercial installations (like hotels). They are not difficult to set up (5-10mins) but it does require Java to run the controller when setting up on the PC.

Note they need a router so these are just for the wifi part - I have mine connected to a BT Homehub with the wifi disabled. In theory each AP can connect to a wired backhaul but in my case I have 2 with the second one connecting to the first one over wireless to give whole house coverage.

What you get is a reliable, strong wifi network. The support is excellent as well, the control panel which runs in a browser has a live chat facility, 5 mins later question answered and sorted.

Not too hard, all you need to do is put the new router in the DMZ and reserve it's IP on the sky router, then on the new router set up the IP addresses and turn off DHCP. Fairly simple to do it and it really does give you a boost, it also allows you to have your sky network free so if you get Q it means you aren't slowing down your own internal network streaming HD video across the wifi.

got this directly plugged into sky fibre POS modem. full house coverage now. what's better is the phone app which let's you turn individual connections off. ideal when you have 4 kids in a large house and they should be asleep.
paid 130 quid at the time. bargain at this price.
