Hmm, near identical in features. I think the one you have linked is the old version basically, this was released much later than the one you linked. Does have external antennas as well with perhaps a few extra firmware/software features.
Be wary of these. They work well enough but to administer them from a phone* takes, unbelievably, a dedicated app, not just an HTML interface which Linksys actively block on mobile browsers.

They could give no sound reason for this when I questioned them about it but you can guess what happens to mobile admin in 1/2/? years when they stop supporting the app...

*I quite often use it for enabling or disabling a group of devices that the kids use.

Thank you, worth considering if that's a feature you activeley use. But for the speeds and other features, as just a home router this seems to be good value option for most looking to upgrade a bit over there isp's router.
over exaggerate a bit there juux the app works fine you can set priories for devices, change passwords all the usual stuff.

But you'll have to have use either remote access or access the router thought a pc/ laptop to do advance forwarding and DMZ

Juux is right in saying the router will block your mobile browser from entering. Good idea I thought. Stops tech savvy guests from messing up my settings.

A simple password for logging into the admin panel would've been sufficient to stop them
Depends how savvy your friends are. Wouldn't stop me.it would just take me 3mins longer.

Plus people who know you will most likely guess it.
Is this any good for use with Virgin Media ?
Zameen

Switch the Virgin router to modem mode, and connect it to this router and it should work.
Is this VPN enabled?
I am on hyperoptic and the orginal router is rubbish IMO, if I want to use this instead, will I require a modem or can just replace with this one. thanks
now sixty seven quid, so expired

Just how tech savvy are you if people who know you can guess your password?
I don't think that's a valid question.
If someone can GUESS your password it has nothing to do with being tech savvy.
They just know things about you like, mothers maiden name, favourite colours, football teams etc information built up over years of knowing someone.

Tech savvy is creating a password that would stop a brute force hack like using symbols dots etc.

Creating a password that yours friends and family can't guess is not savvy.... it's just being normal.
