Not sure why cold - this is a great router for £70 - much better than the junk your ISP sends you.

not sure about this but your comment about ISP junk- I had no issue ever with plusnet router. I accidentally broke it. replaced with a netgear d6400 - internet works ok. but wireless keeps dropping connection. I don't have fancy vlans or rules so having an advanced router is not the right option for me. the ISP router replaced would probably be just fine.

Yeah it's pretty good as a router too

In my experience, many electronic items are returned to Amazon because they're faulty. Amazon don't check and simply sell them on to the next customer. So much so that I no longer buy used electronics from Amazon. It happened with a wireless router, access point, thermal imaging camera attachment and dashcam. I put a discrete note to the next buyer in the last two

I bought the 7800 for £129 last year but returned it as it didn't show any improvement over my BT Homehub 5

to be honest, i completely agree, but when you come across a faulty item, if you even get a faulty one, then just send it back and amazon gives you a full refund, if you're not in a rush, there's no harm in trying to get a cheaper one, right?

The difference between my homehub5 and my smarthub is quite amazing - speed is always within 1mb of the 70mb's top speed and I've yet to have a drop out in 3 months my homehub5 was crap.

Blimey.

I set up an old Asus N66U for father in law recently and that absolutely blew his HH6 away.

Surprised the 7800 didn't make much difference for you.

Isn't this a cable modem? If you are using anything else then you need a separate modem
May explain why it isn't getting hot, and the usb ports aren't very useful, I should think most people noways have wireless printers and (probably) media servers

wireless printers, maybe. media servers? not really i think it isn't getting as much heat as the £20 less one with much reduced specs is because it's £70 for a router, not many people are gonna want to buy that

Has anyone successfully changed their sky router to modem only mode and then connected this to it?
