This is still available. Just ordered for £7.45 with free delivery on Prime.

Still don't know why this was marked as expired. Arrived today, after ordering at the weekend. UK version, with standard 3 pin plug mounted. Shoved it in, pushed the WPS button, instantly paired with my Virgin Superhub and, voila, a wifi repeater. Bargain at £7.45.

​A mifi or mobile phone will do that. I don't know that what you are asking about exists (don't know it doesn't either). Basically with both of the options I suggest the dongle is built in to the router device.
I'm sure someone cleverer than me will let us know.

Yeah this is exactly what you buy a mifi type device for.

I have this. Doesn't work very well with thick old walls. Currently looking for a replacement.
there are some tp-link ones at about £39.49 last time I checked couple days ago on Amazon. I use the cheap D-Linj 500mbps ones which are about £14.99 per pair, and have no WiFi. No complaints.

There are articles that compare various adapters. Google's your friend.
Thank you..sounds very interesting idea. Any recommendations?

Is this much better than the EX 2700 for £14.99? The signal is not great in my house (Concrete walls from 1920). Happy to go for the expensive option if it offers better signal


you can probably get a ​powetline adaptor with wifi for that money (I guess about £5 more for a pair one of them with wifi). I would go for that if the wiring in the house is good enough for 500mbps

definatley got my attention but a bit out of my price anything similar but cheaper?
For a home router you don't need "3200". Just go with a 1750-1900. 3200 router just have two 5ghz bands. Useless for home networks in my opinion.

the thin piece of cat5e will win for speed, but if its thin its probably flat, and if its flat, its probably not twisted, and if its not twisted, you might experience slow performance due to interference, especially in long runs.
I can't tell if that was meant to be funny.
Because "Wire will win, but if... and if and if and if.... then it's crap" was hilarious.
Or perhaps my mind hasn't survived to the weekend.......
I wish I could justify stupidly expensive equipment like this. (_;)

Just bought 1 (_;) added, does anyone know which type of Ethernet cable I need, I was told the cat 5 is the best but after searching I have come across cat 6 and 7 flat cables !! Confused

For most uses Cat5/Cat5e is fine. If the cable is run indoors or you are on a budget the cheaper CCA (Copper clad aluminium) is fine this is really cheap around £20 per reel 308m del. For exterior use get the 100% copper with weather proof coating this is £60 to £80 per reel delivered. For smaller runs look for offers on premade 10m and 20m lengths from under £4 del. Ebay, Ebuyer and HUKD are good sources. Sometimes the cheapest cables are in some odd colours but they will work fine!

With the Cat 6 / 7 cable there are MUCH more costly and hard to lay as they are very stiff and hard to work with. Unlikely you would need Cat 6 / 7 and the cost difference is so large there is no point laying this "in case". Far better to lay 2 or 3 cables of Cat5 which can support the higher speeds for shorter runs. Remember that 2 cat 5 cables can run HDMI (you need to purchase adaptors) and 1 cat 5 can be used for phone. The reason to run multiple cables is that the cost of laying the cable is high compared to the cost of the cable. Also if a cable fails you have a spare cable in place. Plus if you need extra cable in future is already in place.


Man that's getting a bit technical

Cat 5 or 5e is fine for almost everyone - cat 6 if you are really worried about super fast data transfer speeds.
The different Categories are based around the level of shielding so on longer runs or if you are burying in a wall perhaps Cat 6 is more sensible but for most 5 or 5e is suitable.
Thanks for making things clear for me, what about the cat 7 are they the latest cable ? And yes I do need faster data transfer therefore should I buy the cat 7 ?

Cat 7 would be to carry 10 Gigabit data speed over 100m cable length. This router is only rated at 1 Gigabit anyway so a bit pointless in reality.

A bit like putting Super Unleaded Petrol in a 1.0L Corsa. Now if you had a sportscar that could really take advantage of the extra Octane rating then it's worth it...

​would not waste your money unless you are buying a faster switch also. cat 6 would normally be used for 10GbE switches. Not seen any Cat 7 in use but Cat5 is fine for the switch mentioned here

Will this work with virgin and does it have USB for network storage
true, but I'd much rather have the Netherlands than home hub/sky/virgin/a n other default modem. performance alone along with the reliable WiFi signal it gives. no doubt the 6300 would be good, I just see the extra for 6400 as a better value option
That's not just a router, it is a ADSL2+ Modem Router. And price is not great for what it is either.
i paid 65 for the D6400 in store currys (sheer luck) and as with #1 i'd spend the extra for it:

Wow yesterday was the best time to get it then. Obviously raised the cashback just before the change in price.

Unit arrived within 7 days, ( I paid ~90p extra for quicker delivery) so just over £20.00 then !!
Very light and flimsy case, no mounting/fixing points, travel plug type adaptor for psu - I carried on using Netgear 12v 1amp one.
GUI all in Chinese ONLY but once I had internet access Google Chrome translate worked.
(I used Android MiWifi App, its in English, to setup basics to get internet access )
Had to change wifi channel for 5G before 5G started working.
Have it setup now as a wired WiFi AP .
Update worked.
Not as difficult as I first thought it would be.

Can anyone advise me on what router to get? I have Fibre with Plusnet but the awful router loses the connection at least twice a day. It is fibre but it just uses a normal phone line connection and not the "WAN" port. My current router is a "Hub One" which is a re branded "BT HomeHub5A".
I stream a lot of content, I am confused with all the VDSL/ADSL stuff.
My budget is up to £60, what sort of router do I need?
And on another note, how and why are all these broadband providers getting away with providing equipment that is not fit for purpose, on every router thread someone mentions a different provider, they are all giving us junk!.
Plusnet told me it must be an electrical item in my house that makes it drop connection, what a load of nonsense...
Any advise is much appreciated :)
In all fairness I would never expect much from a free ISP router, I remember a few years ago you used to have to purchase your own wireless router, you only used to get a basic usb broadband modem free. They design these routers to suit the basic needs of users. The Hub One has a built in vdsl router hence only needs to be connected to the DSL port. You will need to either get a router which has a built in VDSL modem or use the Hub One to connect to the internet and then a seprate cable router connected to the Hub One via ethernet to provide the wifi.

so "gigabit" WiFi behind a 100mbps ethernet uplink oO crap!

You do understand a WiFi router can be used to create a wireless network to share files right?

Plus it's not 'gigabit' WiFi, the '1167' is a total of the 2.4 band + the 5 band. Just a naughty way for manufactures to mislead us (attempt to, but I see it works sometimes).



​yes I understand WiFi I manage IT for a living. it just seems odd to pair anything 802.11n and upwards with 100Mbps ethernet

"Gigabit" wifi is much slower than Gigabit ethernet.

I don't understand why people use these when we all get a Router from Internet providers ?

I don't understand why people make comments like this.

It's the same reason we have higher tiered/priced products in every category.

Some features a high end router provides over the bog standard ISP one:

Dual/Tri band
Wireless AC
Port forwarding
QoS
Additional coverage
Guest network
Gigabit ports

and those are the only ones I use/come to mind/know of.
What router do you have? I am looking to replace my HH5.
My HH disconnected my BT Infinity connection nearly every other day. I switched to an Asus and it is rock solid going months and months without disconnecting. I can also plug a USB drive into it and use it as a network drive which is nice. Upgrading your router can be just about adding features but it can also improve reliability and range too.

Because the ones Virgin send out are only good for landfill.
Seriously though, for me it's to get faster file transfers across my wireless network and to improve security.
Maybe mine is special, but I've found my Virgin Superhub 2 gives me better range than the two high end routers I was using when I only had a cable modem, turning the router to a modem only and using mine actually reduced performance.
The big downside is the limited port forwarding, DHCP reservations and all that sort of thing, which can be a pain.
mike

My Superhub 2 is in modem mode. I'm sure it's suitable for some, but I would end up rebooting mine once every couple of days or so in router mode. 5ghz file transfer on the Superhub 2 I would say is on the low end.


To be honest it sounds like your Superhub 2 might be faulty, I'm glad yours works well in modem mode. I've had no problems in either on mine and I prefer to use an external router not only because of the extended wifi range, but the range of features extra features no ISP modem will ever offer like VPN in & out, FTP, printer, auto downloading and file sharing via USB3, to name a few. Plus mine acts a local WINS server, so my non Windows clients can connect to my Windows ones via their computer name rather than IP address. All from one low powered device.

@drasim If you think Virgin routers are crap you want to see some of the xDSL provider ones. A Talk Talk one my Aunt was given was absolutely atrocious. If you need to change it for any reason they want to charge you or lock you into another contract. Personally I've had very little problems with Virgin. My router died last year and I rang them 00:30 early hours of Sunday morning and once they determined it was faulty an engineer was sent out Monday to replace it. As with all their equipment, they own it, and are therefore responsible for it. How many other companies do that?

@JellybearXo Why is it that people think that everyone lives in a bubble, and because they don't have a need for something, no one should?! If the Internet has shown us nothing else, there's a big world out there, with a tremendous range of diversity. People don't all live or do things the same way. Thank goodness.

6mm and 8mm. I can't see much use for them though, 1/4" is by far the most common router bit size.

would this be a straight swap for the bt home hub 3?
That's what I did a couple of years back (I think) and it was great, the HH kept losing wifi and having to be rebooted all the time the ASUS was solid. The only issue I had was with BT Sport where I had to adjust some settings (google works for this), definitely recommended for the price

cheers my good man
With Sky you need a separate modem whether it's ADSL or fibre, however, you can use the Sky router to do that job, turn off wifi etc, connect this router directly to it and let it do all your LAN tasks. Little bit more to it than that re settings on your Sky router but Google will show you dozens of guides to do that.
Not true, if on fibre just get a router with VDSL modem built in.... (you will need to use a bit of software to 'extract' your username and pass as sky dont like giving this out)
LOL, yes it is true, and you say as much yourself!
You need a modem for all of Sky's internet services whether it is combined with the modem, like Sky's own sub standard offerings, or a standalone one, which the Sky one can in effect be used as.
I mentioned it because services like cable do not need one as the connection installed allows a router like the Asus to be plugged straight into...which is why they are sometimes misleading referred to as 'cable routers'.
The OP asked if this would replace the Sky one and I gave a correct reply, yes as long as you have something else to provide the modem function, like his existing Sky router or one of the Openreach standalone modems.
Like all things there are many other options available but that is not what the OP asked.

No you said you need a seperate modem which isn't true (but you can 'daisy chain' a router and seperate modem like you suggest) what I said was you can get a router with modem built in (that part is true)

Edit: LOL

Virgin equipment is pi55 poor. Superhub 1 & 2 just don't perform to even the basic level of acceptability.

If you use them in Modem mode only then they absolve themselves of all responsibility by saying they can't test errors etc.
I've had one of these for about 1.5 years. Was fed up of having to reboot the virgin media smart hub every week so switched it to modem only mode and use one of these as the router. Been a solid performer ever since. All the usual features, also has vpn capability, lets you hang usb hard disks off of it as a media server or usb printers as a print server as well.
Excellent price for this. It's not the newest around but a strong, solid performer. Well worth the money.

Yes this will be much better than the HH5. Recently replaced mine with the Nighthawk X6 and it is fast, but more importantly, hasn't crashed or lost the connection once in over 3 months.

No this works the other way around. You connect the box via ethernet and it then creates a wireless signal.
I've had this for a good few years and it's been perfect to use as a wireless extender when coupled with powerlines or for those pesky hotels that still only have LAN internet so you can create your own wireless hot spot.

Indeed. Hard to set up these units!

On another note, can you not just enable NTFS support with macos? Its easy enough with Linux.
Think I'm just going to leave as is, would rather play safe and make do than try and reformat it and ruin the set up I've got.
I've looked pretty hard at options for configuring this unit and had some proper struggles with it. Just FYI I haven't come across anything where the has been a reformat of the drive unit.

Given that also I haven't seen anything about firmware updates or anything, I suspect the firmware is going to be locked to NTFS support, but I could be wrong. I'm not sure how you'd even go about testing it tbh.

I'm guessing that the teardown of the unit would involve removing the rubber feet, exposing some screws? Then disassemble the unit, removing the drive and reinserting a different filesystem'd drive to test it, but YMMV!
has anyone formatted this drive to Mac OS journaled or Fat32? It comes NTFS however me and my family all ue macs. It's working fine over the network, and is picked up my tv so it's working fine, I'm just thinking if we ever want to plug it in and ue it as a 'normal' hard drive, we won't be able to write to it.

I'm reluctant to format in case it loses any of its current functionality- can anyone confirm?
Cheers for that encouragement!

Sometimes you may not be able to access said browser to type it in?
If you can't access a web browser why would you have just bought a router.....?
I've been racking my brain but the only scenario I can think of would be if your only internet device is a roku, fire TV or now TV box, everything else I can think of also has a Web browser.....
Why would you need to have a browser to warrant a browser. Maybe your device is dead and need to configure it. Even with a browser, there are times you may not be able to access the config page and thus the touch functionality would prove useful.
So the scenario for buying a touch screen router is to safeguard against the possibility of all devices with a web browser having failed on the same day your ISP switches over to a new one? Or are you assuming this expensive single band router will throw a wobbly on that very same day and break enough to forget all it's settings but not enough that you can't re-set it all.... :D
Not a safeguard no and I wholly see the point you're trying to make, no need for a touch screen when you can use a browser on pretty much any device to access it - sure I get that.
My point is that there maybe times where a browser is inaccessible. For example, through experience in the past, I've been unable to actually view the config page for the router via a working browser - just point-blank refuses to connect or load the page. Then you have to go through, hard reset the router back to factory and then reconfigure everything.
In that case, you could just utilise the built-in touch screen to overcome an issue like this. Other means would be for non-technical users such as the elderly or such who could simply use it on the front and login.
It doesn't appeal to everyone and some would see it as a gimmick, myself included, but there would be certain uses for a touch screen on the front of a user. The way I see it, it makes it more accessible for non-technical users.

Yeah, I see that as a reason to get a reputable, reliable router, where the web interface works as it should - not one with a touch screen!

Serving up a web page is far simpler technically for the router to manage than driving the touch screen display and capturing the input - I'd say it's just as, if not more likely for that to break and need a hard reset!

And for ease of use, in my experience non technical users stick with what their ISP provides, with no configuration required, then just complain more.

Still, this is the point of capitalism, everyone's free to make a choice, and I defend to the hilt their right to make the wrong one! :)

Good alternative to wifi boosters if like me you live in an older house with apparently solid lead walls and a ring mains sketched up by my nephew in preschool. If you can extend an ethernet cable

same speed but with 4gigabit switch and 20 quids cheaper ..

Yup routers are generally cheaper, but involve a fair bit of tinkering with settings and IP addresses to configure as an Access Point. This dedicated AP is more plug in and go. But I agree if you're not worried about changing settings a router is the way to go.

Not sure why this is doing so badly, good price for a wireless-AC WAP.
