"Alexa, why is my net so slow?"

These are great bits of kit i just purchased the AC 2600 as i found out my Sky Q router only supports upto 30 devices. so stopped the WIFI on it and running all WIFI from the NightHawk much faster now.

Doing exactly the same. Wifi on sky q router is atrocious. Swapping to this as an AP was like coming out of the stone age. Running the ac1900

Does this work with power line set ups too when attached to Sky Q?

Good deal, heat

Why would you buy this router over using the free one supplied by Virgin, are they that good?

If you want more control over your router then buy this. If your ISP supplied router serves your needs then there is no point.

Having said that, this is the difference between a horse and a car.

Massive difference.
BT claims to have the best Wi-fi. It required rebooting every morning because the Wi-fi was ridiculously slow.
I had a nodered server speed test the wired connection every 15 minutes, so it was definitely a Wi-fi problem.
I replaced mine with a separate router and the difference is amazing. Never goes down.

Yes they do. Check out the Asus WiFi adaptors. But if you didn't know that, you probably didn't need MU-MIMO.

Gotta say I love the idea of getting a Nighthawk... but tried a previous netgear MIMO router and still faced the same WIFI issues as with this crappy stock TalkTalk Router...

This or the stock router I got with Vodafone broadband??? Asking for a friend 🙈

I'm sticking with my acoustic coupler.

I had the R7500 for a while and simply didn't find it very stable. Would need restarts every so often and some devices just didn't connect sometimes. Was rather disappointed coming from an Asus router.

So last week after putting up with this for a year I went and bought a TPLink C2600 which so far has been far more rock solid. I might have just had a bad router but the whole software and approach of Netgear put me off.

All are better than an ISP provided router however.

They would need to purchase an additional modem as the Vodafone supplied router cannot be set to modem only mode.

There may be a workaround tho by turning off WiFi and DHCP

I have this running DD-WRT and it's in every way superior to the awful piece of rubbish Virgin send out. Without it I had poor range, frequent dropouts and a hideously slow GUI with the Virgin unit. I now have this coupled with a R6400 (also DD-WRT) over powerline at the rear of my house and my network is as solid as a rock. The Virgin hub does OK in modem mode.

Will this work fine on BT Infinity? i do have one of the white modems kicking about still

Did you try updating the firmware? Was an early user of both the R7500 and now R7800, and both have improved massively with updates. Both had a few stability issues and lackluster range out of the box. No issues at all with either now. They probably ship with updated firmware these days, but worth checking if you have issues.

This is only a few pounds less than the price I paid for the R7800 from Amazon at launch. I would wait for that to drop to sub £130 if you can (seems to every couple of months) as it's a much better router.

Does it work with Google Home too? What sort of commands can it do?

I have a tp link wdr 3600 running ddwrt connected to superhub 3 in modem mode. Works great, so much better than the superhub as a modem and router.
