Very fast and stable router. LEDE is supported which I recommend flashing on it.

From a 5 min Google (because I wanted to know).

Main reasons would be better signal (range), achieving better speeds at range, more secure access, better parental controls, better prioritisation for devices (eg streaming), loading custom firmware for vpn/geeky router things..
£129.99 now
LEDE looks very interesting. Not seen this before (I just have a BT hub). I owned a linksys many years ago...had to switch it off for 10mins every time it overheated....presumably they've sorted that out these days
Showing £129.99 for me...expired? Or am I missing something?

Yeah, I had a look online for info. Wondered if anybody on here had any first hand, real world experience of the router.
Also available from AO.com for £99

Currys PC World will price match with ao.com if it helps anyone.
Unexpired thanks
But is it better than an ubiquiti ap?
Thanks, been in the market for a new router, was looking at the Netgear R7000 or R7800 but at this price I’ll stump for this
Amazon Warehouse deal at £92.07 as well.
Isn't Linksys the one that was found to ship their consumer routers with built in backdoors and comply heavily with NSA and others? Definitely flash it if you have to get it O_o

Yes they were... and with the UK being part of the five eyes and all...
Best thing about these is that you can run the vpn from them so you don't have to worry about the number of devices connected if your vpn is limited in that way.

Exactly what I was thinking
How would this compare to NETGEAR R7800 ? anyone with expert/usage opinion
Decided yesterday that I was going to purchase a router to replace my current BT Home Hub 6 (for security and restriction reasons) and now this had sprung up. Very tempted but I feel I should do a bit more research.
Anyone any recent experience with this model and the updates in firmware since its release?
Expired?
from a wifi point of view, i use a homehub5 and have many dead spots, would this be much of an improvement or how would you find out
bt for instance are saying hh6 has better wifi range but reviews say otherwise so although id love a better wifi range, its a lot to spend on whim, the other features are too geeky for me, its purely wifi range im interested in

Then I recommend you to look at mesh wifi networks for eg. BT Whole Home Wi-Fi, Google Wifi, Netgear Orbi
They are pricey but will solve any wifi issues you have at home

Look into BT Whole Home WiFi as the other poster said, I've just bought a set and they're fantastic, no more dead spots for me.

Are you protected if you are running VPN on your desktop/laptop etc?
