Cheapest it's been according to Camel^3.

Just received a BT Smart Hub and service start on the 13th but after reading the horror stories thought this would be a good replacement without the faff of potential problems. Seems to get good reviews

I am waiting for a bt smart hub to start on 25th. I hadn't heard they weren't much good. Will have a look.
Have you left virgin by any chance?
I paid £17 more last week and can say it is very easy to setup and is working very reliably. I have even managed to get IPV6 working on BT Infinity, which my old Netgear would not do at all. (To get IPV6 you need to manually change some settings after it is all working normally, including adding some DNS servers for IPV6.)

I was really looking forward to the smart hub as lots of reviews rate it e.g. expertreviews.co.uk/bt/…hub and alphr.com/bt/…und


However, when looking at the forums (google BT Smart Hub Problems) there seem to be many issues and I can't be bothered with the potential faff of troubleshooting wifi connectivity issues.


Leaving Sky after 17 years as they couldn't get near the price I wanted to pay although I was happy with the fibre broadband.
Ok. I will keep my fingers crossed.
Have a look on amazon warehouse, when they were doing the 20% off warehouse stock I managed to get the ac3200 for 70 squids and it was still sealed.

I'm really flummoxed now after reading your post, I thought the router just connected to the BT's openreach modem that they will install?

Edit: OK, looks like I've just educated myself. BT no longer supply a modem so looks like I'll have to buy a modem.

Yes, if you want a DSL router. The ASUS you mention is a cable only router. If you are on BT Infinity the TP-Link AC2800 is both faster and clearly has a DSL modem built in.

Would mind sharing how to setup as I brought last week and keep getting disconnected for no reason. Many thank
