Doesn't mention if it's gigabit?
I have these and I'd recommend them for the most part. Far more stable and feature rich than my previous Tenda Novas.
They do have a wobble every once in a while which requires pulling the plug and reinserting, but only really every three months or so, and I'm yet to find a router that doesn't do this!

Is it a router also or just the wireless mesh?

Router and mesh.
It is not a modem

I have it connected to a BT modem which I grabbed on eBay as had no end of issues with the BT Smarthub

Edit: not the pairing of these with the Smarthub to be clear, just the Smarthub in general

Ahh router also. What about other wired devices? I only see 1 network rj45. Tried with a hub?

I'm trying to reduce my number of devices but seems like I will need another hub for wired devices
There are two RJ45 on each device and one on the main unit will be used to connect to your modem (for most people in uk this will be supplier router)
I use an 8 port switch behind the TV for everything else connected into one of them
Thanks for the helpful info.

Hi do you connect the switch to the other port on this? Or connect the modem to the switch and plug this into the switch. Does that make sense

One port modem, one port switch
I have 5 of these in the house, they are the tri band version which i dont think these are. I cannot remember why the tri band are better. E buyer had these ( tri band) on a special back in March for only £64 each. Ordered 3 but only received 2, already had 3 from amazon when they did a one day special for about £190 if i remember correctly. Good coverage around the house had to turn off turn on once.

It does say triband on the amazon listing though

* Ahh no my bad. Ac3900 but does not say triband

Do this include a firewall? Could I connect to Virgin Superhub in modem mode, or would I need a separate router to provide firewall etc.?
These are pretty decent. If I could rebuy I think I would go for the Google ones.

I've had a few issues with mine but their support is very good. Couldn't get them up and running when we moved house and support had me sorted really quickly.

Good for the price.

EDIT: Just realised mine are the AC440 tri band ones so cant comment on this specific version.

I have these and wish I’d paid a bit more for Orbi ones. The software is clunky rubbish. They drop out occasionally and need resetting. Also I never move them but sometimes the signal to the master is great and other times there is no connection or it’s very poor.
