I was tempted to get that myself but put a camel track on Amazon and gambled for them to price match
Anybody know if I can use this as an extender to EA 9500 to get seamless roaming? I know I can add RE7000, but this is much cheaper at this moment.
I was originally looking to buy either the ASUS DSL-AC68U or Netgear D7000. Price aside, how does this stand up to them?

This does not have a mod built in so you would require a router as well vdsl2 capable for fibre

I did see a Youtube video of someone using two EA9500 routers in their home to get coverage.

Just found this: cnet.com/how…rs/ "The Linksys EA8300 Wi-Fi router can also be used as a wired access point or a wireless extender."

Thanks for the info. I will look into the links provided. I have previously done some research. I see that all these routes can be used as range extenders, but couldn't find anywhere if they provide seamless roaming when used with max-stream range.

The only mention is that RE7000/RE9000 when added to other max-stream routes provides seamless roaming.

Thanks for your reply. I have an Openreach modem and cable. I was thinking performance wise. I have a three bedroom terrace with up to 6 devices connected at once including 4K Tv’s and PS4’s. My Plusnet router is garbage
Is this a straight swap for my rubbish Vodafone router, i.e. plug & play?
Seems no longer available from amazon directly.
Oos expired

I am assuming that you have just one unit, which is your vodafone router. This is a router only so you will need another modem. Im not too familiar with their routers, but you can set it up to be a modem mode only and connect the vodapone router to this router. This should give you the features of Linksys without needing to purchase another device.

My ebuyer order is on the way, but I'll send it back - have ordered from Amazon for their service should it go wrong.

So the setup is [BT socket] -- [Linksys modem mode] -- [Vodafone router] ?
Is anyone using this with sky fibre?

Try the Linksys online chat: linksys.com/us/…238. Could be a quick way of getting an answer. Live Chat link is at the bottom of that web page.

I tried it this morning. They just copied and pasted from linksys website. Didn't give me a definitive answer, for now assuming it's no.
Reviews are very poor, going to have to give this one the cold shoulder
