Linksys xac1200 £35
25% of reviews are poor though, also same issues ie loss of wifi signal after very short periods of use, possibly why its being reduced so much? Heat for price but probably steer clear

Where can you find this price?
Anyone using this with VM? I keep reading about people encountering issues after a short while if on VM. I need something new as I'm having an issue with connected device limits. Thanks!

Yes, that's a review from 2015. I was specifically looking for current users of this as I'd read that what begins as a great bit of kit, very quickly goes bad if with VM. It might be specific models but it may also have been the whole Nighthawk series.

Never skipped a beat and I've had it for over a year, although I got it for £45 in the PC World glitch.
The speeds are great, separate bands for those devices you want to prioritise, range is amazing (as you would expect for something with 6 legs) and had built-in web guard etc.

Totally recommend it, only downside is it's noisy

Thanks, this is really useful
"amazon echo enabled" what does that actually mean? that an echo can connect to it and work? or can you actually control it in some way through voice controls?
Wireless gaming router.............................
Maybe for chess
This router is only useful if you have 15-20 devices with high bandwidth usage. And the wireless range is less than the other cheaper options.

The Ubiquiti Edgerouter-X is pretty great value if you have networking knowledge. I got mine from yay.com, £54.99 with free next day DPD delivery. I just use the old bthome hub as an access point and another old router for coverage in the garden.

Go to Tesco, they were selling them off for £10 - £25 probably still got some stock. Been posted on here already

Keep the R7800, it's superior in pretty much every aspect. Let me know if you'd like me to go into detail as to why,
Seen mixed reviews of this device, but took the plunge anyway. Sick of my VM "Super"-hub. Thanks for posting.

It means the Alexa can control some of the router's functions - like you can ask Alexa to turn on or off a guest WiFi network or securely remind you of your own WiFi password via a card to Alexa app.
Hope someone can help since my knowledge about networking is rather poor.....I'm with Origin and use the Asus DSL-N16 they supplied. I'd like better wifi speeds and connectivity throughout the house. 1) Can I use this Netgear with my setup? 2) Will it improve things? Thanks.

I think it's not good practice to keep your wife in the cupboard. And people judged me and my many wives.

I'm using it on VM and no issues at all for me. Been using it for a couple of months now.
Couple of months back X6 and X4s (new version of the 7800 - with mu MIMO) both at £134. I bought the X6 as our home devices (phones, laptops etc) not the latest so not benefit from mu-mimo (also have dedicated media server so no need for USB ports - and will be up on the wall so won't be able to reach - X6 has one USB3 if needed). Newer X4S would be MUCH better option if you have newer devices (also much faster CPU if you want it for 'heavy' VPN usage etc - though I use VPN during the day for 'light-office' work and not probs).

X4S clearly more 'future proof' but by the time our home kit is replaced (2-3 years) something far better will probably be out. Also don't intend flashing (Tomato/DD-WRT) and most X6 bugs ironed out by now so will be sticking with official upgrades. X6 was latest technology in 2015 , using tri-band, and designed for devices back then - which most of our's fall into. Guess the price of the X6 is about where it should be in terms of 'technology' - but if you fall into my category (kids and lots of 2-3 year old devices but some newer kit like games-consoles, Echo-DOT's in most rooms and various home-office automation kit) it is now a fantastic price.
