Bought one of these yesterday from Argos with £50.00 off the RRP - works great so far. I had a specific issue with my TalkTalk router which I couldn't fix so had to go for this.

Amazon have it at the same price (although at one point yesterday the price had gone up to £149.99 but its back down to £99.99 now ) amazon.co.uk/dp/…FNY

Also PC World have the same price :

I have tested it with my Talk Talk setup and it works fine , set up was pretty painless for TalkTalk TV too. (Although you do need to enter a few settings for the router that are specific to your ISP )

Had one for over a year. Great router, use my virgin hub as modem and this handles the rest. Have a 4tb usb drive connected and it works alot more reliably than my other NAS drives. Really easy to use GUI with lots of handy features.
How's this compare to their big daddy one? (The one what looks like its about to launch) Sorry I'm traveling right now so can't grab the number.
We bought a Netgear D6400 last year to sort issues we had with a talktalk router! we had an engineer out and he asked if we had a games console connected to it, apparently its a common issue but talktalk refused to acknowledge it. We had a different router sent out (reluctantly after several phone calls and lies) but still the same issue so bought our own.

Blimey, what have you come from? Netgear UI is awful and missing loads of the features that warrant spending this sort of money.

The issue I had was very edge case where I couldn't use one particular VPN for my work. I could connect but not use the VPN they sent me another router and that didn't fix the issue. So I had to try something else i went to Argos so I could return the router if it didn't fix the problem. On a side note the best way to get Talk Talk issues sorted is via their online forums they are really good and respond quite quick .
Pity this doesn't have the nettduma os running on it. I'd buy in s heartbeat.
Just reserved one from Argos!!
100 times better than the stock talk talk router, talk talk broadband is pretty unusable unless you get your own router...great price for this BTW.
We're with Talk Talk, this might seem a dump question, so sorry, but if I got one of these, is it a case of just plug and play?

Yeah you need a few settings which I have written down and the rest was pretty simple. If you want this info I can send you some links.

If you wouldn't mind please, that'll be great!
Is this one where I can set up a VPN to change my location? Basically put my ipvanish account on using openvpn?
Unless I'm missing an upside, this deal seems worse value than the following router, which is 40% cheaper and offers faster maximum wifi speeds (AC2600 vs AC1900) (except the obvious downside that the D-Link model is just a router, with no modem built in).

Good price, was thinking whether to post it on few days back also.
AC1900 is good for most people, not a lot of mainstream laptop of AC above 867 on the market anyway... .not to mention phones.

So if I bought a modem such as this one I wouldn't have to buy a separate NAS drive? I could simply attach an external drive with all my series, etc to stream?

Correct


Wow, I didn't know that. Thanks. Do all of these types of modems have this feature? (if so, what's it called?)
Good as a basic wifi router, but if you're hoping to use it to control access to your network (eg limiting kid's access at night) then look elsewhere. For example there's only a single schedule - if you want to turn off access to Youtube at homework time that's all you can do - you can't then set up a separate schedule to - say - turn off internet access to specific devices between midnight and 6 am. Quite disappointing in that regard.
This is a pretty decent and reliable router, The wifi coverage isn't the greatest but delivers my Vodafone broadband at maximum speed being 3 meters away. My house is virtually all hollow wall so even the room the greatest distance away does receive an ample enough connection. Good enough to stream Netflix etc. Previously had a Tp link router, That had better wifi but needed resetting virtually every day.

You may already have what you need in your present setup & devices. First read: What You Need to Play Media on a Network Media Player or Streamer

If not, something like this for only a little more than a fifth of the price (£22 after the £3 voucher included there) may be good enough: RAVPower Filehub, Wireless Travel Router, USB Port Data transfer Unit, DLNA NAS Sharing Media Streamer- TripMate Nano

Do you mind me asking what was the issue with the TalkTalk router? I've been with Plusnet for 6 months now and 8ve had endless problems mainly with WiFi but also with ether net connected devices. Plusnet did send us a new router out but the issue remained the same. I'm certain it is something to do with the router but I just don't know what. I would really appreciate your answer. Thanks.
Last I checked these have some serious security issues Netgear refuse to patch and they require you pay a yearly subscription for support. Terrible company with awful customer support and even worse hardware.
Had it for a few years and had no problems. First used it with Plusnet and now running Vodafone BB. It eliminates need for separate modem. It has 2 USB ports which I use to power my Rpi server which is also super useful. I use it with remote access app which also works great beyond local connection. I have quite a few devices connected to it. I estimate around 20 including phones tablets laptops and desktop and a few smart switches and also Synology media server Rpi homebridge server. HIghly recommended.

I ordered the one in the post but I got this instead. I though I was going to get the AC1900.

Damn it. I should pay attention more. I need a modem init.
I purchased the next model up the 7500 back in 2015 for over £180 at the time. It was great in the fact the WiFi coverage went over the whole house in the main. In reality though it wasn’t as great as hoped. Firstly some of the firmware updates lost my settings so I learnt quickly to back them up! The second issue was speed consistency and drop outs, I had to invest in a WiFi extender to make all my devices operate correctly and using Speedtest my speeds fluctuated massively. The GUI interface as also mentioned was clunky. Final last straw is when some of my devices wouldn’t connect for no reason after it was about two years old. Invested in a mesh solution and instantly had a significant improvement in speed consistency, coverage and ease of use. I personally would strongly recommend investing alternatively in one of the Mesh systems, in the long run it will be better IMHO.

Can't really help, I'm afraid - I bought one of these. The Asus ones are supposed to be good, but I have no direct experience.
Any recommendations

Hope you can help. I'm with Vodafone fibre and the WiFi speed is terrible, did this help you? Also, do you need any more equipment or does this just replace the VF router?
Many thanks

Yes, This is a million times better than the Vodafone modem/router. This is all you would need, You would need to obtain your Vodafone credentials from Vodafone to be able to set it up. I got mine via there online chat, You just have to state you're using an openreach approved modem/router and they'll give you your user name and password etc.. If they ask which router just state one of these from the list
Hope that helps.
