Would I be able to use this as a WiFi extender? ie RJ45 cable from my downstairs virgin superhub in front room, then plug this in upstairs and get better WiFi upstairs?

Probably better to use this as your main router and put the hub in modem mode
One Google search shows it was never that price, it's like £30 most places.

If you're using the Super Hub 3 then as said above, it would be a better option to use this as your main router and stick the Hub into modem mode. That being said there's nothing stopping you using both for wifi, just disable DCHP on the Belkin or enable Access Point mode if it has has such a setting.
Can I setup NordVPN on this router?
Any benefit to using this over BT SmartHub?

Didn't they get hacked?


One server did because of an expired certificate.

Yes.
19.99 on amazon
amazon.co.uk/Bel…TF8
filtering the reviews just for this model, it comes up pretty favourably.

I hate my virgin hub with a passion - it disconnects my ip cameras and google home speakers intermittently all the time - so I'll give this a punt. awesome price at 15.94 but for a few quid more I'll buy it from amazon for the ease of returns in case it's not all it's cracked up to be (I know, I shouldn't admit this on a deals site - I'm surprised myself) or it has problems within the 2 year warranty, which amazon has been very good at refunding/replacing in the past

thanks OP for bringing this to my attention

No, its a pile of junk.
Got one for the sake of it. Let’s hope I can get some use out of it lol.
Not that good I bought one last time it was on offer. Gets a little hot and signal quality isnt that good.

I use mine as a second WiFi access point upstairs but to be honest it's miles better than the Superhub 3 I'm thinking about getting another one for downstairs.

Typical Amazon trait for some time is to refer the customer to the manufacturer for all warranty assistance, moreso after Amazon's 6 months mandatory obligations have expired (manufacturer likely to be less hassle than proving 6m+ case to Amazon).
I had one of these. It's garbage.
Has anyone added a VPN service to this router, all help much appreciated!
Cheers! Guess have to bite the bullet and go for a decent router and add VPN to it.

A LEDE OpenWrt flashed, pre-tweaked one from eBay for under £20 could be more than good enough for your needs - here's an example: ebay.co.uk/itm…886 - before purchasing, message the seller to clear any doubts & confirm it has the features you're looking for. Plenty more similar ones on eBay for similar money.

Many Thanks, you seems to have a good understanding. All I am looking for is to add VPN, got TPlink to sort out the range etc. Guess OpenWrt is the best option to configure VPN, and all household devices will be sorted.
@Crossbow Had a read on eBay for some of reviews, not for faint hearted, but cheers for find. Heat added to you comment

Yes, should be fine for that I reckon (I did a bit of research in the past when I needed one). This one comes with a few more related bits included for a little extra: ebay.co.uk/itm…565
Recommended to read the full description of this one first, so you know exactly what you're getting into with one of these: (i.e. not plug & play): ebay.co.uk/itm…711
