Way better than BT ones
I've got a shortage of available sockets at the moment because of the I get from here so I was wondering if I buy this, would I still need my Vodafone router plugged or would this replace it?

If your router is also your modem, you'll require it. If your Vodafone router is connected to a modem, then you can replace Vodafone router with this Belkin and connect Belkin to your modem using a LAN cable

I'm kind of confused, really am a moron when it comes to this. All I've got connected is the router that was provided by Vodafone so I'm guessing it's acting as both the modem & router?

Yup. So essentially, what I'll recommend is buy one of those £6.99 for two surge protectors from Currys, hook up this Belkin alongside your Voda modem + router. Try and deactivate the wifi on your Voda router (you'll have access to that using router settings config) and connect belkin to your Voda using one of the LAN cables that ship with it.

No clue, but you can always augment their router with this if you have a large area.

I've just switched from BT to Vodafone. Had Smart Hub 6 with BT and the Vodafone router seems just as good. Smart Hub 6 wasn't terrible - WiFi signal and speeds are decent in an average size house.

I'm also getting 5-6mb better download speed with Vodafone than BT despite them both being the same 76mb fibre product.

In what way? I have the HUB6
Does this have ability for a mate to remote in via VPN to sort out my server for me?
Doesn't seem to support Openwrt if anyone is interested.

No LEDE support either. Would have bought it to act as an extender.
A Mikrotik HAP AC Lite will absolutely annihilate this router but it costs £45. Well worth getting if you're learning networking as it's effectively a tiny linux computer running RouterOS. Here's a demo of the RouterOS interface >

demo.mt.lv/web…ig/

amazon.co.uk/Mik…ite

802.11ac wireless with excellent range and POE so you can power a central access point from it as well if you wanted or other devices. Only has 10/100Mb Ethernet ports though.

There's no need for OpenWRT because RouterOS is as you can see from the demo a fully fledged networking interface with more options than you'll probably ever use.

Most probably, no. Unless your ISP provided you with a ancient hardware that peaks at a point which is over and above your subscribed bandwidth. This router is mostly about range + reliance especially if you have over 15 wifi devices in your household.

No worries. I thought as much!
How easy is this to configure to use as an access point? I plan to use a powerline adapter and an access point to extend my range up to the loft

Well, you can not use it as an extender, but you can set it up as your access point No. 2, so if you get out of the range of your first wifi, this second one should kick in. Fairly easy to configure this.
How would this compare to something like the Asus 1200G, my parents have a virgin connection and once 6 people were in the house, the 'SuperHub' wifi kept flaking out.

Was waiting for a good deal on the 1200 G as it has 10/1000 ports which future proofs it a bit, struggling to find any details on whether this Belkin model does too and also if it's a reliable high signal router.

If its just 10/100, wouldn't most people be better off with the Asus AC51U

19ms ping to where? That’s pretty good for external sites.

WiFi on Vodafone router is appalling. Turn it off and run a tplink archer through the ewan port and you’ll get 90%+ of your lan speed over the WiFi network you’ve created

Looks really cool. Yeah the lack of Gigabit ports is a turn off. RouterOS looks great.

I agree. I'm getting better upload speeds from Vodafone compared to BT. I also had the Home hub 6 and for me the Vodafone Connect router is just as good. It does the job so to speak.

You would also need to disable DHCP on one of the devices.
For people who are on an ultra budget huawei makes a router for talk talk (errugh) that puts out a very strong signal. You can configure it for ap only and it can be brought for as little as 6 quid off ebay. Tut is here: bruisah.wordpress.com/201…er/

point is that it is out of stock on ebay and if someone missed can still get from there.
Can second voda router is a crap compared to BT lots of lag and struggles with multiple devices and speeds will be setting up a second Wi-Fi access point instead

voda know it’s bad as they give you log in details for access

anyone know something that I can use as a router and modem ????
Is this a concurrent router? meaning that both 2.4ghz and 5ghz work simultaneously together at same time which would allow 2.4ghz and 5ghz devices to work on one network?
also is this a cable router? Any help apppreciated

Turn off the router function of your ISPs router and use this as your wifi access point.
