If you can hop onboard your handy local time machine go grab it for less than £100 from PC World 2016 cos at that price it was a bargain (I got one too). If you cant access a local time machine then I'd probably spend a bit extra and get the AC3200 for reasons already given but it's a very close run thing.
Have to say though with Merlin firmware this thing has been rock solid for me for months and months on end and yes mine does get rather warm but it doesn't seem to affect the performance.
This is good review comparing the two: http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum/hardware-canucks-reviews/69918-asus-rt-ac87u-rt-ac3200-routers-review.html
Informative review, thanks for posting. Seems the AC87U is the choice for me as it outperforms the ac3200 over distance and our house is pretty spread out
Is if 5Ghz or 2.4Ghz range you need?
If it's 2.4Ghz (which is slower, but covers a much greater distance) you're better off with a cheaper router that specialises in a strong 2.4Ghz signal.
If 5Ghz range is important both the AC3200 and AC87 have the worst 5Ghz speeds at distance. You might be better off with the AC88 or the AC68:https://www.snbforums.com/attachments/image1-1-jpg.6451/
LOL, I'm certainly not 25 metres away from my router at any point in my house :D
Aye.
Me neither.
But some people like wifi at the bottom of the garden like. ;)
(Tbh 5Ghz wifi is all much of a much rangewise - more concerned about dropouts/bottlenecks with certain clients.
The AC87 used to be notoriously awful for this with some 5Ghz devices but has apparently improved.)


I agree, the 5Ghz used to be quite bad for dropping off etc, but since a recentish Merlin update we have had no bother, probably 3 or 4 devices using the 5Ghz band plus all lan ports being used (although I may retire port 1 if I can see any bottleneck though I haven't noticed anything) plus a full 8 port switch and a 5 port switch connected.

All no bother, haven't updated Merlin in a while so may do that again soon.

I've been considering this for a while now, okay the ac87u doesn't looks as strong when it is compared to other routers in this thread,
But I'm not looking for a top dog router, currently rocking the VM SH 1.
Somebody be able to educate me if the ac87u is better then what I currently have in every department? I know that the features are a bonus.
AC 5Ghz on top of your standard 5Ghz for a start (any clients you connect would need to be able to use the AC channel mind).

Lots of other things that'll no doubt improve your range and speeds.

I'd grab the AC68 the next time that drops under £100 if I was you tbh.

Heat added. Purchased to replace multiple devices (including BT HH6). Let's hope this works.
It's a router not a modem/router so won't replace the HH6 unless you buy a seperate ADSL or VDSL modem.
Yes you are correct; i have purchased the openreach modem from ebay to address that.
Sounds good.
I bought a second hand Huawei EchoLife HG612 as a modem to replace BT's own, as that one worked so much better than the supplied ECI type.
Any advice on what to look for when replacing the HH6 ?
I used to have Virgin with the Superhub running as modem only with RT AC-68U (Merlin Firmware). But since I switched to BT, I've reluctantly stuck with the HH6 (no modem only mode).
Seen plenty of Openreach modems on ebay, but not sure which model to get or rather avoid. Some are listed as unlocked, but can't this be done to any Openreach modem. Would rather not pay extra for something that I can do myself.

I'm in a similar position to you; I'm using the HH6 and its a really poor device. I just picked up a BT Openreach Huawei Echolife HG612 Modem off ebay for a few quid will connect this to my phone socket and WAN port of the ASUS wifi router and have this manage all my traffic. I picked up Huawei as opposed ECI as the local BT fibre cab i'm connected to is setup with Huawei. You can find out what you local cab is using the following site:http://www.kitz.co.uk/adsl/cabinet-lookup.htm#fttc_cab_info
Hope this helps.
It looks as though my cabinet is an ECI does that mean I have to use an ECI modem or will a Huawei modem still work?
Also, does the modem have to be unlocked? Cos if I had to go down the ECI modem route, these look a bit more tricky to unlock.
ta

For me having an ECI modem meant that once G.INP was enabled my latency went high and the speeds dropped by almost a third. That was how it remained regardless of how many visits from OR or phone calls to Plusnet were made.

When I then changed over to the bought Huawei modem, which had its firmware updated to cope with the G.INP implementation, everything returned to normal.

I am not sure how much the issue was influenced by the need for like for like, in hardware terms, but for me the differences found were very noticeable.

Mine is unlocked, I unlocked it, but I have never needed it to be.

How much throughput could this give you using a VPN? My current router only manages 15Mbps, and the meraki one while powerful enough can't connect to many types.

My dual core 1ghz Netgear R7000 struggles with my VPN configuration. So I shape the traffic to share with the WAN and the VPN, to ease the load.
All consumer based routers are going to be the same.
You really need to build a x86 box with a CPU which supports AES instructions for encryption and decryption and run pfsense as your router and VPN.

As noted I just share the traffic so that dumb boxes use the WAN, other device the VPN and my desktop PC a VPN client for fast downloads.


​Another option is to use something like a Netgear Prosafe router/switch. I got a second hand one with hardware encryption,16 LAN ports and dual WAN which allegedly will do 200Mbps of encrypted data - it was about £75 on eBay including shipping from Ireland.

Then you can just put your DSL modem on one of the WAN ports, and do the wireless piece separately, maybe through a mesh system...

Noise? Power Consumption?
Bought a used netgear... GS724T or something like that. Passive cooling so it's quiet, claims to have Green credentials which I believe given the ports report a draw of 5.2W combined (not all in use)

This is admittedly after picking up a used managed switch where the fans had failed without me noticing, that one blew up one day after giving me weird errors, outside the eBay return period of course.
Not voting hot as the price has remained £25 for at least 6 months as I bought 2 in that time.

Also no point in the average user buying a managed switch, may as well get the tplink for less if you need earthed sockets or the normal unmanaged netgear for under £15 when it is on offer (not checked the current price)

The only plus side for the average user is the lifetime warranty.

why is this getting colder? Is the router rubbish or what? I can't find any cheaper price and people talking about D7000 model is better in terms of feature - but its £50 more expensive. Its like saying better off getting a bentley instead a ford escort (not that I am mocking ford as I had one or two in my time!)
browneyone
bought one last year from pc world for 64 quid


Me too can't fault it at all
I have this router and find the performance spot on. If your in the market and this fits the budget I'd recommend this. It also alows you to remove the need for your open reach box - you'll need to find your ISPS fibre condition details, which should be easy to find.
For those in the market on BT and similar and that use BT TV (or similar) you need to make sure your router supports IP TV.

I know my D7000 does but I'm not sure about this model or TP-Links etc
I have the bigger brother (D7000) and it's great with more features than I would ever want / need and the wireless range and strength is fantastic.

I believe this model has almost all the features however, if you are buying it to improve your signal strength from the likes of your BT hub etc, according to what I read when researching it gives similar results to that of the BT Hubs etc.

Might be worth keeping in mind - for me excellent wireless performance was the more important factor (and it didn't disappoint).

Anyone know if there is a way to get VPN settings/info for a free VPN that will allow to be setup via router settings page?
The firmware has a setting for 'always on VPN' which you can configure.
Is there any way to find out what the server, protocol, username and password are for a free VPN from Google play store eg FREE VPN or cloud VPN or something like softEther VPN or similar free VPN?
I just signed up for a VPN and am very happy with it it nearly maxes out my 200mbps Virgin BB and it was cheap it worked out £14.50 for 20 months they also have a free account with allows 10gb a month its called Windscribe and best of all its usable with P2P and they keep no logs on there customers and to be sure i asked them. Youve got nothing to loose with a free account, by the way the fastest servers ive found are Switzerland but Norway and Luxembourg are also good. They also have a browser addon for those that like that.https://windscribe.com/
For the 20 months heres the link because if you go through the Windscribe homepage its $90 a yearhttps://windscribe.com/upgrade?promo=WSNY2016
Have you any idea where i can get all of the needed info from the vpn site you spoke about - this is what is needed
Name Protocol type Server address Username Status
Thanks
Looks like Windscribe uses OpenVPN protocol and doesn't offer PPTP or L2TP connections.
This router doesn't have support for OpenVPN from what I can see, so you'll need a VPN that offers PPTP or L2TP protocol connections

You can actually compile and install an OpenVPN client on the R1D once you get root access. Lot of work though.

So I take it that means a subscription type VPN eg ipvanish?
Yeah ipvanish would work, as would PIA, VyprVPN and many others
Do you know of any vpn that is free that would have the info for the router
​Not sure, I bought a 2 or 3 year PIA subscription when it was discounted a long time ago so haven't tried any free ones recently.
I'd recommend paying for one to be honest, free ones often only give you limited bandwidth and are often over-used so are slow or unreliable

No, generally you will need to buy them to get the username/passwords, or 'pay' for their service using the ad revenue their app generates. Otherwise everyone will be using the same VPN without creating any incentive for the provider, overwhelming their service.
You guys know if it's possible to download or open the Google play store app onto this router and then install a free VPN onto router?

Yes, put your sky router or virgin router in to modem only and use this. Flash it with dd-wrt for a super cheap vpn client router.
I bought one at full price 18 months ago. It's fast and has good wireless range but it dropped the connection a few times a day - really frustrating. The replacement did exactly the same. I ditched it when I spotted an Asus AC87U for £80 in PC World, of all places.

be wary of tp-link. awful firmware and unreliable/unsustainable throughput with more than 3-4 clients.

Had several TP-Link routers with 10+ simultaneous clients and never had a problem. Maybe some of their routers are dodgy.

Looking to replace my **** awful Talk Talk Stupidhub
The TalkTalk router contains a modem and router as well. Is the TP-LINK Archer C9 a modem router?
Or are you going to connect the TalkTalk router to the TP-Link Archer C9?
No, the C9 is just a router, I'll keep the Talktalk router and just use it as a modem
So not actually 'replace'. That way if I move to another ISP I can just swap modems and not have to reconfigure/reconnect all my wifi devices
So how do i set it up? Do i disable wifi in the TalkTalk router and then connect the TalkTalk router to this new router and set it up?
Secondly I have ports open for my PS4 games in the TalkTalk Super Router, would i have to remove them from there and add them to the TP-Link Archer Router?
Look up setting up an additional access point on google. Basically you switch wifi off from your ISP's router, then run an Ethernet from that to this (into LAN, not WAN). Then on this configure it to have wifi enabled and DHCP disabled. Keep all your forwarding rules on your isp router as now. This just acts as an entry point on to your existing network via wifi. Your main isp's router still does all the ip assignments and traffic management (port forwarding etc).
There are other configurations you can go for, but the above is easiest to get set up, there are many examples walking you though it on google if any of what I've just said needs padding out (like what static ip to assign to the AP etc).
I didn't do this :)
I have plugged my C9 WAN socket into on of the ports on the super router
The Huawei has a default IP of 192.168.1.1 - the C9 is 192.168.0.1 and everything points at that. I've since disabled the WiFi on the Huawei
To each their own
As I said, more than one way to skin a cat. Having a multi subnet setup like yours can complicate port forwarding and upnp discovery for media servers etc. But straight internet access will be fine.

Looking to replace my **** awful Talk Talk Stupidhub
The TalkTalk router contains a modem and router as well. Is the TP-LINK Archer C9 a modem router?
Or are you going to connect the TalkTalk router to the TP-Link Archer C9?
No, the C9 is just a router, I'll keep the Talktalk router and just use it as a modem
So not actually 'replace'. That way if I move to another ISP I can just swap modems and not have to reconfigure/reconnect all my wifi devices
So how do i set it up? Do i disable wifi in the TalkTalk router and then connect the TalkTalk router to this new router and set it up?
Secondly I have ports open for my PS4 games in the TalkTalk Super Router, would i have to remove them from there and add them to the TP-Link Archer Router?
Look up setting up an additional access point on google. Basically you switch wifi off from your ISP's router, then run an Ethernet from that to this (into LAN, not WAN). Then on this configure it to have wifi enabled and DHCP disabled. Keep all your forwarding rules on your isp router as now. This just acts as an entry point on to your existing network via wifi. Your main isp's router still does all the ip assignments and traffic management (port forwarding etc).

So, what kind of wireless ac card would you recommend to go with this?
I need to put one in the back of my PC.
I am unsure of all the different speed standards - ac1300, ac1900 etc
My broadband is 100mbps (soon to be 200mbps) via Virgin Media.
Any recommendations appreciated.
I'd go for something like thishttp://www.ebuyer.com/291714-tp-link-tl-wdn4800-n900-wireless-dual-band-pci-express-adapter-tl-wdn4800
or this for lower costhttp://www.ebuyer.com/343318-tp-link-tl-wn881nd-300mbps-wireless-n-pci-express-adapter-tl-wn881nd
The ACxxxx -
the AC - refers to the wireless standard
the xxxx (in the router above, 1900) refers to the maximum speed that the router can throughput ON BOTH CHANNELS
2.4Ghz is often a lower speed (600Mbps) than 5Ghz (1300Mbps), but has greater reach.
600 + 1300 = 1900
AC1300 will have lower speeds (e.g. 300 & 900)
AD7200 Multi-Band—Runs three separate Wi-Fi bands, 60GHz (4600Mbps), 5GHz (1733Mbps), and 2.4GHz (800Mbps)
Hope that helps
Thanks.
But why would you not go for something like this:http://www.ebuyer.com/728214-tp-link-ac1300-wireless-dual-band-pci-express-adapter-archer-t6e
The two you linked aren't wireless ac I don't think?
No, but they'd still work fine. Yes the one you listed is certainly an option, but you're already WAY over your Broadband speed. You pays your money etc..
If you had you own local network for streaming at super high speeds then of course go for it.
It all depends on your use. I've gone AC1900 due to the sheer number of devices i'm putting through it. They'll be sharing the bandwidth available on the router.
Thanks for your help.
No problem
and i've just seen this

Interesting and yes I'm pretty close to the cabinet at about 150 metres and get a decent connection and sync.

Yeah thats probably why you dont have the same issue others getting. My bet is that they tested this device at relatively low noise level environment, as noise causes havoc on connections at certain levels, you get better understanding of how much tolerance needed for top speed... at low noise level which re usually to do with very close distance to cabinet/exchange, you dont get knocked out easily as your noise margins are gonna be high enough to ignore the noise...

I replaced my lower model TP-Link with this new model. Problem is I think, it tries to sync at higher speed rates that are unstable at the noise levels... I have a lower sync rate with my current TP-Link which i have been using for more than a year now, and re-sync issue hardly ever happens maybe once a month or once in a further longer time frame...
With this model, it is super unreliable to the point unusable as once it starts going into resync it goes almost forever. you get a connection for a few mins to few seconds at worst end before looping! There are too many people reporting the issue, and i think it is to do with the chipset/firmware that constantly tries higher rates than possible but noise makes it unstable. My guess you are not having the issue is you are "probably" much closer to exchange and less prone to noise issue or your path to exchange is relatively clean and less interference on the way...

guys beware of the model's neverending problems... i purchased v1 of this and had the unfortunate constant resync/disconnects which is super common on this model, very unreliable model. so far between v1 n v2, i cant find any specific differences online besides only mention of minor h/w changes... stay clear of this generation unless you can find a reliable source of info regarding this model's track record... i personally couldnt..
The odd thing with TP Link adsl/vdsl modems is that reading reviews of all their various models you see some people have this disconnection / unreliable connection problem time and time again and yet many others (me included) have a rock solid connection for months and months. I know some problems could be home wiring, sockets etc but always wondered why some people have no problems and others have lots. I'll still continue to buy their kit as I've never had issues on the several products I've had from them.

I've had a dig around on the Netgear site, and see no mention of it having gigabit ethernet, with it being described as "high speed", which is often obfuscatory shorthand for 100mbps - something that might be worth paying attention to if a gigabit sized connection to your fibre based service is important to you (which it might not be). HTH.
Since neither adsl or vdsl currently exceed 76megabits, what would be the point of a gigabit lan point?
I've already given my thoughts on that above. I'd make more of an effort to explain further if it wasn't that a) you're trying to be smart (the above thoughts notwithstanding); b) you've answered your own question by specifying 'currently'; c) since joining HUKD in 2015 you've shared no deals.
Not trying to be "smart", just asking a question. What does the fact that I haven't posted any deals got to with anything? Didn't realise it was a pre-requisite of passing comments.
It's a bit rich asking me/others something that has already been explained (including by yourself in how you asked it), particularly when you've made little effort to contribute yourself. HTH.

The speed of transfers on your LAN is determined by the lowest speed device. So if the router was only 100 Mb/s and everything else was gigabit, you'd be limited to the lower figure. As far as the WAN speed is concerned, it's irrelevant.

Still a deal as I've not seen any other cheaper modems and certainly not with gigabit LAN.
If Openreach Did roll out a faster profile and you were close enough to the cab to benefit then yes this might become a bottleneck in the future.

They havent been £24 for as long as I can remember; I bought the next model up in the range for £15 a couple of years ago (has an external antenna).
Very reliable brand, though if you can get the 722N, it pulls in a lot more signal; kept me online (with wifi access to someones unsecured router) for 6 weeks when Vispa buggered up my internet connection.
£2.60? How?
Bought this a couple of years ago from currys for £20 works great and have not had any trouble with it,even on other pc's.The only thing I had to do was download drivers for it online (on another computer or laptop) because I didn't have a CD drive and never use one

EDIT: I got the N600 version (TL-WDN3200)(300mbs)

I would be tempted myself at the price it is if I could be guaranteed that there would be a noticeable improvement of the 1.7Ghz dual core being able to handle my VPN connection at full speed rather than being saturated like my 1Ghz dual core is of the R7000.

I have not tried it myself, but Voxel's firmware for the R7800 could work for you. It focuses on speed and CPU optimization for significantly faster OpenSSL/OpenVPN performance.

Sadly this deal has expired but I'm sure it'll show up again - set up a Camelcamelcamel alert.

​Thanks for that but I have decided to get my head around a pfsense built up box. For not much more than a good consumer router I can build one with much much more processing power than any router you can buy. It would be more configurable and very suitable for a VPN connection.

I have been with Vodafone for 16 months and can't wait to leave when my 18 months are up. I and many others initially had a problem whereby wired networked devices couldn't "See" each other. For instance my Networked AV Receiver could not "see" my Networked Hard Drive. Worse than that wired devices couldn't "see" wireless devices and Vice Versa. Initially Vodafone blamed the other devices manufacturers of non compliance despite the fact that previously my BT Router worked faultlessly
The easiest partial workaround was to buy a switch and plug all your wired devices into a switch which was then connected to the Router.
However, to use my two wired networked printers I had to resort to temporarily using a wired connection for my wireless PC's.
Vodafone then rolled out a firmware update last September'ish which partially cured the problem - Devices on the 2.4Ghz wireless were fine but devices on 5Ghz still had the initial problem.
Vodafones solution was to only use the slower 2.4Ghz network!
A few disgruntled Vodafone Forum users, including myself, managed to get their own Username & Password allowing us to buy our own Router/Modem.
Vodafone management quickly changed this policy and to this day the supplied Router still has the 5Ghz issue and they continue to refuse to give out Login details enabling people to use their own equipment.
IMHO This deal is best avoided if you have any sort of wired/wireless network.Further ReadingFurther Reading 1
​I have used chat to speak to two different sales advisors both of whom are adament that you can use an altenative router,however after read many forums this does not seem to hold true. I am looking to move from plusnet as my ruoter has started (again) to kick off random devices when new device is conected. I explained to vodaphone who seem keen to promise the earth to get you to sign up, however in this respect they are no better or worse tnan other ISPs who all do the same. trying to find the least worse seems to be the trick.
I'm with talktalk, I know the stories, but i use my own Asus DSL-AC68U and i can do whatever i like: vpn back to home and telly from abroad, server, back-up; all in all, without including free calls abroad to ladlines, it works just the same.
I also have vodafone mobile contract, so I could get this deal 1/2 price for modem and modem delivery (exactly the most important object, and already lucky owner of an Asus): not worth it, reading forums; and I wouldn't save sweet fa.
sorry, cold for me!
And just to add the only reason you have to use their router is they connect everyone to 76mb fibre regardless of package and the router limits the speed according to package as the router serial is tied to a specific account at a time
HaraldBB
Totally unprofessional company, customers service is a joke, online system not ready for landline/broadband. If you want to wait for your new router a week after installation date (3rd party routers not allowed), spend 1.5 to 2 hours waiting every time you want to speak to customer service, wait 30 minutes for online account logon authorisation text valid only 20 minutes - Vodafone broadband is for you.
If you don't like it - RUN!!!!

I was tempted by low price and fibre service through BT Openreach. Wast stupidly thinking "what possibly could go wrong?" and signed a contract. Then learned in hard way. Luckily used cooling off perion and ran away. With big relief.



I've just left them as their routers kept packing in but their customer services team were really helpful. Answered instantly every time. Just not great for a student house with 20+ devices trying to connect.
how do I end or stop this deal... not worth sharing
sorry guys... did not do enough research... :(

Only of any use if you have a ISP supplied modem with no/REALLY poor wifi.

For similar money you can buy a number of ADSL routers with better WIFI, even a few VDSL.

The ONLY thing this has going for it is looks.

(AM I going to get banned as well??)
It's Xiaomi Router model 3C, not the better one model 3. It's without modem. It's chinese version.
Also I think that it's marketing bulls*** that there're only 4 pcs left.

Replaced my Sky ADSL router, after pulling my username and password from my old router using Wireshark the automatic install took care of the rest.
Had an issue with some wireless devices though - most connected fine, but my missus' iphone 6S kept dropping and my Android phone kept reporting no internet whilst other devices were connected fine. Seems to be an issue with ipv6, once i turned that off in the router settings, the issues seemed to go away

What no flash aerials? I expect to see at least four nowadays.
Which is why this router is useless... Aerials do give you better coverage, but also cost of unit rises a lot too... Also on most units aerials can be detached and extension cable connected giving you more flexibility with coverage and unit placement. As for me all them superhubs supplied with your provider are rubbish, no control, always buggy firmware, unpredicted behaviour with more that 10 devices etc...
my topcashback just tracked at £0.28. £35.71 after topcashback.

Bt smart hub 6 or this ?

I can't comment on the Linksys, but recently moved from BT Homehub 5 (which has been brilliant, except for slightly dodgy signal upstairs) to BT Smarthub (aka HH6) . Smarthub is useless - loses VDSL connection, devices can't connect to the wifi, and every time they do a software update I need to factory reset. Did get an extra bar of wifi signal upstairs though, for what it's worth! BT sent second Smarthub and they are both the same. Have moved back to the HH5 and all is fine.

It's still not a bad price.
Indeed, still a bargain!
Same here was up and running quickly with plusnet FTTC however decided to stick to the Plusnet Hub One (BT Home hub 5) as their is no option to change DNS so no real advantage for me using it for connection but works great as an additional access point for extending range. Seems to work with most FTTC providers apart from SKY, I actually contacted Linksys support team to see if it would support Sky's FTTC but they didn't even know who SKY are.

price has gone up to £39.99 now that currys/pcworld have finished their discount code offer.
It's still not a bad price however after playing around with the settings I have decided not to use it as my main router, one of the main reasons being in vdsl mode you cannot use your own DNS settings it only allows the ISP ones. Im using it with a powerline upstairs to extend the range and so far it's working well getting around 702Mbps between my laptop and this router on the 5Ghz range.

Just in case you guys don't know, Linksys = Belkin, it's not the same quality as 5 years back when they were part of Cisco. Cold for me

Oh I see, I had a Belkin wireless N router about 10 years ago and was a lot better than my current Superhub 3.0. Is this not a good buy then?


​Superhub 3 is a rebranded version of ARRIS TG2492S so no surprises that it was better, my warning is for those people who think that this is as reliable as lisnksys used to be, and it's not!

I used to have this router before I got my current one. this is a very stable router. can handle 6-8 wireless clients and 4 LAN clients without any slowdown. However wireless range is not good for large house.

This deal is no longer available, but it's not a great router for those with internet faster than 25MB/s anyway. Can't expire this deal on my phone so if someone is willing to do it for me that would be brilliant

if the wan port is 100megabit / 12.5megabyte
it is good for internet up to 100megabit / 12.5megabyte

It is very simple


​Hey! Yeah I decided to take this back, bought a Netgear PL1000 powerline kit and works like a charm! Control panel says I'm on 1Gbps and download speed is my full download of 56MB/s. Very happy I bought powerline over a new router.

https://www.asus.com/Networking/RTAC51U/specifications/
Not really for people wanting the best performance, it's severely limited by a 100mbit WAN interface port https://www.asus.com/Networking/RTAC51U/specifications/ why would Asus do this?! If it supports speeds up to 300mbs etc the wan port is under specification ???
Older Rt-n66u and the newer ac 66 posted earlier better for people who want the fastest throughout on their router but this is fine for casual users, no idea why Asus would cripple the WAN RJ45 port on this model though... Crazy
Would this then limit my internet speeds if I connected this to my virgin Superhub? I only want to use WiFi and no wired connections. My current speed is 50Mb, would this limit my speed to 10?
No you would get the full 50. In theory anyway. Closer to 100 and you would be pushing it.
Right gotcha. I'm currently on 325mbps and a download speed of 50MB. Hoping this router doesn't limit my speed. Also the RJ45 port says 10/100, not sure what that means? I take it this is the port where you would connect it to the Superhub?
10/100. Means 10Mbps or 100Mbps, whichever the device supports.
If you are on 325Mbps you really need a router with gigabit wan, 10/100/1000 otherwise your superhub will be connecting to your router with a severly limiting 100Mbps throughput.
So I won't get the full 325Mbps or 50MB download speed with this router? I'm so confused with all the numbers, sorry for being a pain. I just don't want to limit my download speed or bandwidth
No mate you definately wont.
Damn, looks like I'll be taking this back then. I'll try it and see what speeds I get, if I get capped at 12.5MB/s this is going straight back.
Hopefully Asus just got the specs wrong on their site, because there's no way you can advertise something as giving you up to 433Mbps speeds when it is actually impossible

Theoretically it can give you 433Mbps between WLAN devices, if it meets what the box says, which is most likley full of marketing **** and "up to" type of data.

Anyway give it a go and report back ;)
RT-AC51U: This model does not use Broadcom chipset and therefore cannot run Tomato firmware
Not tomato - no buy ;)

I now have the open reach modem and asus router, i am having trouble setting it up, i wondered if you followed an instruction video please?


Scorpion
themarrons
does this work with fibre? looking to extend the range in my house as my current one doesn't reach the house extension. thanks
It's a router, but doesn't include a fibre modem like the all in one boxes that Sky/BT/Virgin offer. That leaves you with a few options:
1.) Buy a fibre modem from Ebay or similar
2.) Connect this to your Sky/BT/Virgin hub and use the modem in that
3.) Buy the DSL version of this router which has a fibre modem built in
I used option 1.) when I got my one of these about three years ago. I then got a BT fibre modem from ebay for a tenner and hooked it up together. I've used it with Sky Fibre and BT Infinity, setup is pretty simple if you follow some of the online guides.

soton26
I strongly advise anyone against the DSL version, instead buy an Openreach HG612 from eBay and use in conjunction with this deal.

Never happened since but lost about 2 days of my life messing with it!
Possible loopback on the network.
Another vote for a greater switch.

Can you please explain a little bit about "possible loopback", please. thanks

could anyone explain why this would be useful for my setup? 3 floor house, ethernet on ground floor, with ps4 and TV in another room, office on 1st floor with a PC. then top floor has a kid's room with a PC.
at the moment everything runs on WiFi.

Short version is it wouldn't be helpful on its own. Think of this as a 1 to 7 multiplier for ethernet connections. Now if you were willing to run cables in the walls of your house then maybe this could be useful, run one cable from your ground floor to first floor then use one of these to multiply it for the devices on that floor, do the same for the second floor.
Back up to £18.11.

You can have 7 of your home's devices on a wired connection rather than all hogging WiFi.

You'll need to run cables through the house to do so but a wired connection is faster and more stable than WiFi.

Would this be good to replace Virgin MediaHub 3?

You'd still need the virgin hub in modem mode and you'd lose one of the LAN ports on this but according to the TP-link site yes you can use it as an ethernet based router if you want to.

http://uk.tp-link.com/products/details/cat-5030_Archer-VR600.html

Might be worth checking the price of the version without the built in DSL modem (since you won't be using that on virgin media)

I think all modem/routers should have 4g sim card functionality as standard.
Just for clarity, there are on 3 routers in that table. it is not number 1 router out of all routers.... it is the best 2600 router out of 3 others....But, and a huge big floating boat of Buts, it requires you to have MIMO clients...and MIMO has simply not rolled out very well at all across manufacturers....it is a case of yet another router manufacturer claiming all sorts of lovely things, when the reality is no one has the equipment to make use of said lovely things...

Not saying it is a bad router, more a pointless router, unless you have MIMO clients

now i need one it goes full price...:(
Improved over/with my virgin hub 3.0 from 19mbps to 35-40 all over my 3 bedroom house.
Mine arrived a few moments ago, top service from amazon, wasn't supposed to arrive until tomorrow.
Ordered, thanks! This will replace my C7. Hopefully Beamforming will improve AC performance at range

Excellent timing. Xbox one streaming is crap on my bt hub, this should sort things out!

I am hoping for the same thing over my crappy Virgin Superhub2. File sharing is a nice bonus too.
