Looks good. Heat. Question for HUKD experts though - I live in a relatively compact house and wifi on BT Smart Hub usually makes it to the farthest reaches. Loses a bit of speed but generally OK. However on occasion (and I can't see a pattern) it is patchy at extremeties. I had thought about mesh eg BT Wi-Fi discs but given that my current router can usually reach all parts of house I wonder if a more powerful router like this would be a better spend than a mesh system? Thoughts welcome. Thanks.
Multiple access points (mesh) should always be better than a single one when coverage is the issue

Understood, but in my particular example the BT Smart Hub reaches extremities 90% of the time. My preference is to avoid discs (mesh) all around the house for aesthetics if possible. (I know people will say they can be discrete, but my wife wouldn't agree!) I'd assume on the face of it this router would improve on the range and possibly speed, so might still suit my needs?

You're probably right... but not necessarily. Wifi signal strength just has too many variables to gamble a ton on.

I've had this very router for years and the signal strength is nothing particularly special in my opinion.
Is this any good to use for VPN?
Idiot alert over here

I have always used the routers provided by ISP’s but always wondered why bother buying a netgear one at a cost of £xx

Do they make a difference?
(My wifi is terrible and i have speeds of around 35mbps)

Only if cabled, wireless mesh is crap compared.

Depends what you mean, you can connect to its built in VPN server from outside the home, but if your on a dynamic ip you'll need to sign up up no-ip or similar.

If you want to connect this to another VPN server then out of the box it won't do it you'll need to flash the firmware look on myopenrouter for alternative firmware.

I just need a router or modem which can help me use my VPN subscription e.g. Nord, Express etc. BT modems are available with OpenWRT for £20 on eBay but I am not sure if they will be able to maintain decent broadband speed along with VPN.

Then you need a router capable of being a vpn client. This will do it with openwrt or tomato, you need a decent CPU in router for decent throughput for VPN this would be much faster than a BT modem.
Any VPN router recommendations? I am looking at this box.co.uk/WRT…ate
