would these be worth getting as a single router?
I’m looking for a decent range extender or mesh system but no matter which device or product you look at there are too many negative reviews putting me off. Looking at the reviews for this, 22% of customers rate it three stars or lower. When you read the three star reviews (in a few cases) its ended up with units being returned, even at 1 and 2 stars it’s a whopping 17%

The last three star vote was a Virgin Media user having to return the item (I’m with same provider).

I’ve added heat as this is about price rather than the opinion of if the product is good or bad.

If anyone else reads this and they can suggest a good alternative please fire away. The homeplug type things are no good either, I need the WiFi to reach an outdoor building 10 feet away from the house on a different electric supply

I think the issue with this is people don't actually understand what they're buying.

For it to work seamlessly and as designed you have to have a separate modem - there is no modem built in for any connection.
As you can't do this with Virgin it won't work as designed.

For your needs I would look at a setup like the BT whole home that plugs into your existing router.

BT disk seem to be well received on here by most, l bought some but returned mine because lm going to wait for the new wifi standard which will be released soon, yes yes it will be expensive for early adopters but l will monitor it for a bit before buying.

I had WiFi connectivity problems in my place, which is far from massive. Tried the Netgear mesh system (the name escapes me at the moment), it wasn’t great and I had three points which should’ve been overkill.

Tried these and my WiFi has been rock solid, constant, quick and able to stream 4K over wireless.

I’d recommend Google WiFi but you’ll still need your router to connect to the internet and then connect your Google WiFi to that.

HTH

Would one of these be enough to replace the wifi part of my Sky Fibre, and be as strong as a BT Smart Hub for WiFi?

These are decent until the amount of connected devices starts going up when they all start to struggle with dropped connection. If price is not a major issue and you have a lot of devices then take a look at the AmpliFi HD kit by Ubiquiti.

Thank you but again, I read the reviews and over 20% of the reviews are really bad. It just "seems" like nobody can supply a decent system that works which is terrible in todays modern world

Can’t you turn the router to modem mode and then plug into that?

If the router supports that, not all do and I'm pretty sure the virgin one doesn't

They can, but it's not cheap. I have the BT one and for me it's working fine.
But I don't want extra features such as turning off access etc. I just want decent wifi coverage which it delivers.
Virgin Routers can easily be put into modem only mode , you just have to log in and change settings all from the little pull card attach to the router .

you can get three of these for £209 from eglobal

waiting for prime day as i want the new Synology router currently at £117

Why? What is so special about this router?

Virgin Media use their own infrastructure/ tech (DOCSIS)
Most other providers use BT infrastructure which is less locked down.
annoyingly this has gone back up in the last couple of hours

I have these and the features and look are good, but the range is poor in my opinion, I have Tenda MW3's at another house and their range is fantastic a much better value for money purchase but the Google features and monitoring is nice.

Back to £89
Cracking deal. Have 2 already but want to push the signal a bit further for outdoor use (cameras etc).
Has been over £100 for ages so bitten at this price 🔥🔥🔥
Hi All,

These do work very well, I have set them up to work with my Virgin connection.

The key thing is you have to keep your existing router (the Google units aren't routers), connect the router to one of the Google units and it will then broadcast the wifi signal in your house, you can then add more Google units around the house to extend the signal seamlessly.

The one thing you have to do with your existing router is to switch off the wifi broadcast, the wifi is broadcast via the Google unit once you plug one into it.

Cheers
Had nothing but trouble for years with my Internet at home, tried all sorts of homeplugs, extenders etc.
Bit the bullet last year with a pack of 2 on offer for £180 - Internet has been full speed and faultless throughout the house since day one.
Absolutely fantastic bit of kit

I’d 2nd the BT Whole Home system and wouldn’t base opinion purely on Amazon reviews. If you look back through previous BT whole home deals on here you will mainly see positive feedback from those who have purchased with only the odd complaint. Whole Home is the popular choice of the mesh solutions because it’s more or less plug and play only dealing with Wi-Fi and leaving your router to handle the internet connection and traffic.
